Adapting shape-changing interfaces is a technology still in its early stages of development.
Pitas is an easily produced, adaptable and reactive smart material that can locally or remotely convey physical information such as shape, color, texture and temperature changes. It works by heating ethanol which in turn forces a silicone matrix to comply by expansion to reduce the pressure. Pitas can be used to create reactive oft-material systems.
