About

Professor Follmer's research in Human Computer Interaction explores the design of novel tactile physical interfaces and design tools for digital fabrication and smart devices. His work maps out a conceptual space of Dynamic Affordances, describes new interactions with shape changing interfaces motivated by the careful study of users today and expert designers working with physical materials, and begins to evalute how these new interfaces and devices can help users.
