Ninja Track is a belt shaped object which possesses the capacity to alter its flexibility and hence strength. Using this structure, we also had created two applications. One is a physical game interface which can transform a whip into a sword virtually and physically. Another is a musical instrument which can make sounds depending on its shape and interaction.
