Trampoline: a double-sided elastic touch device for creating reliefsAlthough reliefs are frequently used to add patterns to product surfaces, there is a lack of interaction techniques to model reliefs on the surface of virtual objects. We adopted the repoussé and chasing artwork techniques in an alternative interaction technique to model relief on virtual surfaces. To support this interaction technique, we developed the double-sided touchpad Trampoline that can detect the position and force of a finger touch on both sides. Additionally, Trampoline provides users with elastic feedback, as its surface consists of a stretchable fabric. We implemented a relief application with this device and the developed interaction technique. An informal user study showed that the proposed system can be a promising solution to create reliefs.
