ABSTRACT

Τhe "Body Heat Generated Interactive Surfaces" project (2010) reinterprets Michael Webb’s idea by utilizing the heat produced from the human body in order to trigger interactive inflatable surfaces and adjust them so as to facilitate various body actions like relaxing, sleeping, sitting, walking etc. The surfaces are to be located in public places.
