Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This work follows a novel approach to information presentation through haptics using muscle-wire. The muscle-wire is extremely lightweight, silent and does not require complex circuitry. Its property to shrink in length when an electric current is applied, can have many interesting applications, some of which we present as a proof of concept of our vision. In this paper, we describe our initial prototype and a rst series of user tests that demonstrates the possibility of representing discrete and continuous informations.
