Twisting Table is a sub-project within a larger research ambition of "Home+," where robotic furnishings are designed and fabricated to support people aging at home. There are totally three pieces of hardware developed at this stage of the research, including a chair which could go up & down, a wall which could open & close, and this table which could twist and incline while going up & down. The table design is actually a variation and combination of two Stewart Platforms, so that the whole design is not only functional and interactive, but also aesthetically elegant and pleasing
