Ripple is an interface designed to control interaction with an intelligent thermostat. As systems become more intelligent and adaptive, communication with them becomes more complex. This interface uses shape change and haptic force feedback to balance human and system control in interaction, while it also aims to teach the user better energy-saving habits. Additionally, the shape is used to reflect the activity of the thermostat throughout the day when the system is controlling the temperature.
