When interacting with a smartphone, the user does not just interact with the screen-based user interface (UI) but also the physical hardware's form. This thesis looks beyond designing smartphone screen UI's as a separate entity, a common practice for many interaction designers. Instead, this research investigates combining the physical smartphone form, the screen-based UI and the biomechanical tool used to interact, that of the human hand, informing more compelling user interactions.
