summary The emergence of media infused facades and new human computer interfaces have been of great interest in architecture in the recent decades. Most of the emerging examples are geared towards a multi-dimensional graphical output and most commonly stimulate our sense of sight. This paper explores recent developments in soft robotics and material sciences, developed at the Material Dynamics Lab at NJIT, that will allow the human computer interfaces to engage its users by captivating a multitude of senses simultaneously. Furthermore, this paper will contemplate future trajectories for the novel material strategies to improve human-computer or human-robot interaction, that one day may lead to truly robotic architectures.
