This gadget offers users the odd sensation of squashing and deforming objects like clay and empty cans. The work is an entertainment device designed to let the user enjoy the feeling of crushing and stretching various everyday objects at will. By moving a rolling-pin-like device over a 3D-scanned object, the user experiences a tactile perception of the object through changes in friction and shape.
