Tactile/Haptic interaction are employed across a wide range of applications on tabletops and tablets, from controlling virtual objects locally or remotely to interaction with physical tangible widgets. By taking advantages of the sense of touch, tactile/haptic feedback provides different user experiences to visual and audible feedback. For example, in recent years many studies for touchscreen displays indicate that haptic feedback enhances user experience, while combing with visual output. It is an interesting topic to study the fusion of visual and tactile/haptic feedback for interactive tabletops and tablets.

Tangible user interfaces link the physical objects with virtual objects, and the sense of touch extends the tangible interaction from 2D images on a screen to 3D space. Various tangible widgets and tools bridge the gap between virtual and physical controls on tabletops and surfaces, while several commercial products are available, like the reactable tabletop and Adobe’s digital ruler. However, only few studies are focusing on haptic feedback by these tangibles.

Besides, tactile displays enhance touch interfaces with tactile sensations. Tactile/haptic overlay based technologies, allow users not only multi-touch interaction, but also explore tabletops and tablets haptically. As a new type of tactile devices, refreshable pin-matrix displays improve accessibility of graphics-based information for visually impaired people.
