Recompose: Direct and Gestural Interaction with an Actuated Surface

Matthew Blackshaw, Anthony DeVincenzi, David Lakatos, Daniel Leithinger, Hiroshi Ishii


In this paper we present Recompose, a new system for manipulation of an actuated surface. By collectively utilizing the body as a tool for direct manipulation alongside gestural input for functional manipulation, we show how a user is afforded unprecedented control over an actuated surface. We describe a number of interaction techniques exploring the shared space of direct and gestural input, demonstrating how their combined use can greatly enhance creation and manipulation beyond unaided human capability.
