Tactile Displays: Their Current State and a New Approach
This paper seeks to explore the types, functions and desired attributes of tactile displays and their current realisations. Much attention is given to design rationale and problems, and a method for classifying braille reading techniques is put forward. The paper looks at theoretical implementations of transient displays, before detailing the design on which I am working.
