This paper describes an attitude control method of fur surface for an interface covered with fur material. Chimpanzees and cats are known as animal which assumes a threat posture as one of their communication ways. When they adopt a threading posture, they raise their hair. As this phenomenon is also perceptible to human, it can be useful element for human user interface. Therefore, we set our goal to achieve a control method of fur surface and apply the method to interfaces with fur. With this method, we achieved rapidly changing of hair attitude. Also, through user study, we confirmed that the method is feasible approach for vision perception.
