We've presented our latest study on a new variant of tactile illusion for elucidating mechanisms of tactile smoothness perception. Participants also received our latest tactile illusion card as a souvenir for EuroHaptics 2018. Thank you Masaki for your great efforts on this project. Let us keep working on it.
