Spotted: Shape-changing interfaces: a review -- sounds like a nice update of our nearly 10 year old survey


Shape-changing interfaces: a review of the design space and open research questions

Majken K. Rasmussen, Esben W. Pedersen, Marianne G. Petersen, Kasper Hornbæk

Shape change is increasingly used in physical user interfaces, both as input and output. Yet, the progress made and the key research questions for shape-changing interfaces are rarely analyzed systematically. We review a sample of existing work on shape-changing interfaces to address these shortcomings. We identify eight types of shape that are transformed in various ways to serve both functional and hedonic design purposes. Interaction with shape-changing interfaces is simple and rarely merges input and output.
