Increasing HCI work on affective technologies is using different materials to represent biosensory data. We explored several thermochromic, heating, and insulation materials to represents skin conductance data through abstract and ambiguous representations. We report on the development of three prototypes to represent emotional arousal using different colors, patterns, and shapes. By critically reflecting on our experience, we highlight problems in these prototypes and propose design guidelines to inform future research for representing arousal using thermochromic materials.
