In this paper, we propose a tactile display with a rigid coupling based on Dielectric Elastomer Actuator. The proposed design of the tactile display is explained and its basic operational principles are discussed. It consists of three parts, that is, actuator layer, coupling and upper layer. The rigid coupling is sandwiched between them. Because of the simplicity of the design, the fabrication is extremely easy, that is just to bond the upper layer to the actuator layer after making EAP actuator sheet and upper layer. The device is fabricated with multiply stacked actuators and its effectiveness is validated experimentally.
