This paper extends our understanding of existing physical and gestural interfaces and presents a potential design space in affective computing using human movement as a form of emotionally expressive interaction across physical distances. We discuss a conceptual design in which emotive, non-verbal modes of social collaboration can facilitate remote communication over networked intelligent environments. Exploring this idea for such an interaction can help us consider future contexts in facilitating more expressive and communicative human-human interaction.
