When force is applied to the surface of the skin, the human sense of touch detects not only its magnitude but also its direction, which is essential information for daily tasks. To convey this versatile ability to the realm of personal computing, the GelForce tactile sensor measures in real time a surface traction field or a distribution of 3D force vectors applied to the an elastic body.
