Locally and Dynamically Controllable Surface Topography Through the Use of Particle-Enhanced Soft Composites - Guttag - 2015 - Advanced Functional Materials - Wiley Online Library
So unstretched/uncompressed elastomer has smooth and flat surface, but by compressing or stretching it, embedded hard particles cause surface deformation. Useful for things like tactile interfaces, surface drag reduction, anything that involves surface features. The tactile interface usage will probably be used for adult toys though...
