SlickFeel is a haptic display that delivers two distinct types of feedback to a finger on a touchscreen during typical operations of sliding and clicking. Sliding feedback enables the sliding finger to feel interactive objects on a touchscreen through surface friction variation. Clicking feedback provides a key-click sensation for confirming a key or button click. Two scenarios, simple button clicking and haptically-enhanced thumb-typing, demonstrate the utility of the two haptic effects.
