Title: EV-Pen: An Electrovibration Haptic Feedback Pen for Touchscreens
Booth Number: et_0003

Summary: We present an Electrovibration Pen (EV-Pen) which incorporates electrovibration into pen interactions. The EV-Pen not only exploits the advantages of conventional pen-based interactions but also provides a wide range of haptic feedback modes without any form of mechanical actuator. The EV-Pen simulates real pen-on-paper feeling, enhancing the user experience in drawing and handwriting, and providing feedback while interacting with virtual textures and GUI elements on touchscreens. Furthermore, we have discussed implications of the EV-Pen for future explorations.
