A concept of a full screen tactile display driven by electrochemical reactions is presented. It is based on theoretical considerations of electrochemical reactions which occur during electrolysis. The basic calculations of electrochemical equations are discussed. A model of one cell and full size tactile display is proposed. A project of a driving and controlling system of a tactile display is presented.
