OmniFiber is a reconfigurable fiber technology for movement-based interactions based on thin fluidic fiber actuators with closed-loop strain control. We explore how thinness and sensory capability of artificial muscle-based devices can be utilized by designers to seamlessly weave them into everyday tangible interactions; such as haptics-mediated skills training or actuated tangibles for remote interpersonal communication.

*This project was conducted at Tangible Media Group, MIT Media Lab, in collaboration with KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Uppsala University -- led by Ozgun Killik.
