MARSUI (Malleable Audio-Reactive Shape-retaining User Interface) is a deformable hardware prototype exhibiting shape-retaining behavior. It can track the shape the user creates when deforming it. We envision that a set of predefined shapes could be mapped onto particular applications or functions. In its current implementation, we present three shapes that MARSUI can be formed into: a twist, a fold, and a bend. Since the malleable interface can also take other forms, feedback plays an important role in guiding the user toward the predefined shapes. In this project, we focus on investigating the possibilities that auditory feedback could offer in guiding the user toward reaching the intended shapes.
