    'Actuated Tangible User Interfaces'

    My HCI (human-computer interaction) research focuses on designing and developing Actuated Tangible User Interfaces (A-TUIs). A-TUI is an emerging type of user interface that can physically actuate (shape-change and move) for novel user interaction.

     

    While modern computer interfaces (displays, wearables, IoT, VR/AR, etc.) have remained physically static and visually dominant for information display and interactivity, A-TUIs can physically convey digital information and dynamically adapt to bodily interaction.

     

    My research in A-TUI merges physical materials with computational and robotic technologies for creating a seamless tangible interaction experience.
