Abstract

NoiseBear is a malleable multiparametric interface, currently being developed in a series of participatory design workshops with disabled children. It follows a soft toy design, using conductive textiles for pressure sensing and circuitry. The system is a highly sensitive deformable controller; it can be used flexibly in a range of scenarios for continuous or discrete control, allowing interaction to be designed at a range of complexity levels. The controller is wireless, and can be used to extend the interactive possibilities of mobile computing devices. Multiple controllers may also be networked together in collaborative scenarios.
