Magnets are very useful for the rapid prototyping of haptic interactions. However, it is difficult to arrange fine and complex magnetic fields rapidly. Therefore, we invented a method for fabricating complex geometric magnetic patterns by overlaying multiple magnetic rubber sheets that have proper thicknesses and simple magnetic patterns. With our method, various types of geometric magnetic patterns, such as checkered and diamond ones, can be superposed. Furthermore, the superposed magnetic fields can be changed by rotating the layered magnetic sheets. By applying superposed magnetic fields, various types of tactile stimuli and haptic interaction can be created rapidly.
