Smart material interfaces : a vision
Minuto, Andrea, Vyas, Dhaval, Poelman, Wim, & Nijholt, Anton (2012) Smart material interfaces : a vision. In Camurri, Antonio & Costa, Cristina (Eds.) Intelligent Technologies for Interactive Entertainment. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, pp. 57-62.
In this paper, we introduce a vision called Smart Material Interfaces (SMIs), which takes advantage of the latest generation of engineered materials that has a special property defined “smart”. They are capable of changing their physical properties, such as shape, size and color, and can be controlled by using certain stimuli (light, potential difference, temperature and so on). We describe SMIs in relation to Tangible User Interfaces (TUIs) to convey the usefulness and a better understanding of SMIs.
