Probst, Kathrin, Seifried, Thomas, Haller, Michael, Yasu, Kentaro, Sugimoto, Maki and Inami, Masahiko (2011): Move-it: interactive sticky notes actuated by shape memory alloys. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2011 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2011. pp. 1393-1398. http://dx.doi.org/10.1145/1979742.1979780

A lot of people still rely on pen and paper for taking short notes. Post-Its are still the most popular paper media for informal note taking. In this paper, we present the design and implementation of Move-It, a system that combines the affordances of note taking on paper with the capabilities of computer systems. Furthermore, we present how common Post-It notes can be actuated by shape memory alloys, thus become interactive sticky notes giving active physical feedback.

Koizumi, Naoya, Yasu, Kentaro, Liu, Angela, Sugimoto, Maki and Inami, Masahiko (2010): Animated paper: a moving prototyping platform. In: Proceedings of the 2010 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2010. pp. 389-390. http://doi.acm.org/10.1145/1866218.1866234

We have developed a novel prototyping method that utilizes animated paper, a versatile platform created from paper and shape memory alloy (SMA), which is easy to control using a range of different energy sources from sunlight to lasers. We have further designed a laser point tracking system to improve the precision of the wireless control system by embedding retro-reflective material on the paper to act as light markers. It is possible to change the movement of paper prototypes by varying where to mount the SMA or how to heat it, creating a wide range of applications.
