Designing foldable user interfaces (“foldinterfaces”) is complex and time-consuming because of the multiple technologies involved in the process, from the hardware details for folding pixels to design requirements regarding efficiency and ease of use. To assist this process, we introduce a visual editor for designers to specify foldinterfaces by implementing an extension of the Yoshizawa-Randlett diagramming system for origami and Event-Condition-Action rules from event-driven software architecture. The outcome is rendered as a 3-D foldable surface in a virtual environment.
