A novel method based on deformable length of elastic element control to realize the softness display for virtual operation and teleoperation is proposed, and the real time softness display interface device has been developed. The softness display device can quickly change the displayed stiffness by controlling the deformable length of the elastic element, so that the human fingertip can feel it as if he directly touches with the virtual object or remote object by interacting with the device, thus he can accurately distinguish and classify different objects.
