A novel shape-changing interface in the form of a “line.” Lines have interesting characteristics in terms of interaction design: abstractness of data representation, various inherent interactions/affordances, and constraints as boundaries or borderlines. By utilizing such aspects and the added capability of shape-shifting, this work presents applications in different scenarios to investigate the design space of line-based shape-changing interfaces.
