Human beings acquire information such as surface conditions, hardness, temperature, and smoothness through feel. The texture of materials and other tactile sensations greatly affect tactile perception such as feelings of comfort and discomfort. We developed a haptic device using direct drive by shaft motors capable of simultaneous horizontal and vertical direct drive. This enables texture to be presented realistically. We introduce the structure and features of the haptic device and present basic experiments verifying its feasibility.
