What would happen if all the interfaces blended into our daily objects? How can we interact with machines with disappearing interfaces? In this project, I explored different feedforward to support interaction between humans and computers. We designed visual and shape-changing modalities to communicate possibilities of hand actions to adjust the volume of the music with a textile-based Interface.

Discussion & Conclusion
I presented the research project that accesses the effect of four different feedforwards and their affordance and user experience in terms of human-computer interaction. Based on the findings, I suggested that inherent feedforward can coordinate the human-computer interaction to some extent. Dynamic light feedforward could provide more intuitiveness regarding the action possibilities of the interface. Shape-changing seems to be an eligible modality to provide a better user experience that could make the interaction more easy and enjoyable.
