Development of High-Speed Thermal Display Using Water Flow
A temperature sense is one kind of tactile sense. It doesn’t have high spatial resolution and time resolution. But a change in the sudden temperature is also used for sense of danger. That has a high possibility that it can be applied to information display. In this study, water with the high specific heat is used as heat carrier. High-speed thermal display systems are developed by changing warm water and cold water in temperature exposition. In this paper, we explain the characteristics of the temperature measurement system and also describe thermal display system using the rectangular flow channel. Then we developed a water circulation type thermal display system.
