• 0:00 – This is the TanvasTouch Viewer.
  • 0:05 – Let’s start by opening a haptic asset. Clicking on the open button here will let us choose a haptic image from the computer. I’ll upload this velvet texture.
  • 0:14 – On my TanvasTouch-enabled screen, I can feel the texture with my finger, but I can also turn off the display and still feel it
  • 0:23 – Turning the haptic display off makes sense when uploading a visual asset.
    Let’s pick the velvet visual to match the velvet texture.
    Now I can feel the haptic texture and see the visual image of the fabric.

  • 0:57 – I have decided to edit the haptic image texture a bit.
  • 1:02 – On my graphic software, I’ll add a different haptic feeling for the gaps
  • 1:08 – And I’ll save it with the same file name
  • 1:19 – Notice that the haptic asset has not changed, and when I move my finger on the screen, I feel the previous texture
  • 1:25 – By clicking on the refresh button, the new haptic image will appear.
  • 1:28 – Now I can feel the new texture.
  • 1:31 – I can also check the “Auto Refresh” box
  • 1:36 – And when updating the image, let’s for example revert the changes I did on the gaps
  • 1:47 – The haptic image will automatically change. This of course is relevant for the visual asset as well.
