Most objects can be expressed as wireframes with a surface. We have utilized this property of objects to create a 2.5D reconfigurable wireframe based shape display. We define an interaction language and semantics to interact with the shape display by directly deforming the surface. To demonstrate the affordances of the shape-changing display and the associated interactions, we present a scenario of a topographic data viewer on our prototype system.
