Soft-Spiky Mouse: Designing Aesthetic Forms of Computational Objects The soft-spiky mouse changes its surface textures according to user behaviors. For example, if the user works with the mouse too long, the mouse displays spiky textures to raise awareness to the passage of time and/or the need for refreshment or break time. Alternatively, soft tactile feelings are displayed if the user completes a task, which would provide a pleasurable tactile feeling experienced as a form of encouragement.
