Shape-changing interfaces

  title={Shape-changing interfaces},
  author={Marcelo Coelho and Jamie Zigelbaum},
  journal={Personal and Ubiquitous Computing},
The design of physical interfaces has been constrained by the relative akinesis of the material world. Current advances in materials science promise to change this. In this paper, we present a foundation for the design of shape-changing surfaces in human–computer interaction. We provide a survey of shape-changing materials and their primary dynamic properties, define the concept of soft mechanics within an HCI context, and describe a soft mechanical alphabet that provides the kinetic foundation… CONTINUE READING
