Furnituroid: Shape-Changing Mobile Furniture Robot for Multiple and Dynamic Affordances

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This study introduces shape-changing mobile furniture robot, named 'Furnituroid.' It is based on a polysemous design approach that integrates multiple functions of furniture into a mobile robot rather than simply extending traditional furniture as a robot. Furnituroid allows for dynamic affordances on a furniture-scale, and aims at room-scale dynamic affordances by arranging its multiple pieces. This study describes an instance of Furnituroid and the design space considering through its design process.
