Lifting Kirigami Actuators Up Where They Belong: Possibilities for SCI

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


Kirigami Actuators are two-dimensional patterns that allow the translation of a simple actuation in one dimension into a complex transformation in another. Kirigami Actuators represent one metamaterial strategy that designers of Shape-changing Interfaces could utilize to minimize the size and complexity costs of actuation. Metamaterials yield great promise for HCI and Shape-changing Interfaces in particular. In an effort to reveal the promise of Kirigami Actuators for the design of Shape-changing Interfaces, this pictorial presents several design tactics for a specific Kirigami Actuator: The Lift pattern. These tactices outline how different components of the pattern can be changed to strategically alter the transformational qualities of the pattern. Initial concept sketches are presented as inspiration for future work.
