Interactive Surface

The interactive surface is a surface that can change its shape and absorb and reproduce pressure impulses. Due to the compact and matrix-based design, a wide range of applications are possible. As a result, the area differs from comparable products, which are much more complex in structure and control. The project is a further development of the idea of ​​Dipl.-Ing. Victoria Peters. The surface is changed using woven bands in a matrix structure, which can thus create a curved shape. Furthermore, the same ligaments react to pressure and can pass on this information. This interactive or reactive surface can thus act as an interface between man and machine or between two people, on the one hand as a sensor and on the other hand as an actuator. The project was funded by MWFK Brandenburg.
