We propose a haptic interface for touching 3DCG models based on the tactile copy & paste technology. In case of conventional systems for providing haptic sensation of touching virtual objects, it is challenging to reproduce realistic surface textures of objects. By scanning vibrotactile stimulation as audio signals, we realized recording of textures of real objects and reproducing of them with a wearable haptic glove with force and vibrotactile feedbacks. In our system, the user can appreciate a number of virtual objects with various scanned textures, and also, change their textures by haptic copy & paste from real objects to virtual 3DCG models.
