Even if almost all existing haptic interfaces provide a user interaction based on a single contact point, an increased number of contact points, not only allows to display a more natural haptic interaction [3, 4], but also improves the quality of interaction that users can perform in the environment. Haptic exploration is highly dependent on the number of fingers used for exploration of common objects , the largest difference appearing between the ‘one finger’ and the ‘two fingers’ conditions , and as proven by Jansson et al.  by the ability to discriminate a precise tactile pattern during the exploration. In , we found an experimental confirmation of this hypothesis: the haptic exploration do not improve with the increase of contact points, from one to two fingers.
