We describe progress towards the provision of realistic cutaneous information to accompany kinaesthetic input currently available in devices used to haptically explore virtual objects. A temperature change at the fingertips is made coincident with "touching" a virtual soft drink can. Pressure orthogonal to the skin surface contacting the virtual surface can be incorporated in a similar way.
