Many tactile devices have been proposed and enable us to sense and display tactile sensation precisely. However, most of these devices are large-scale and need complex calculations. For the reason, it is impossible to handle tactile systems without technical skills and tactile technologies have not disseminated. In order to spread tactile technologies to general public, we require an environment that even general people can create and share tactile content. Therefore, in this study we propose the methods for creation and sharing of "user-generated tactile content". The methods aim to construct tactile system that enables users without engineering knowledge to create and share tactile content. Moreover, based on the proposed techniques, we implement online platform for creation and sharing tactile content.
