Day 3: Awareness of nervous tapping of feet
I wanted to create a device which made people more aware of their unconscious/ nervous actions. This is a prototype, designed for people who have the nervous habit of shaking their legs when they sit! I placed a force sensor on the heel of the shoe which, when a force put on it from shaking, sends data to the piezo speaker and LED’s at the front of the shoe.
If I were to make this device again I would use an Arduino Lilypad so that less space would be taken up with electronics in the tongue of the shoe.
Day 2: Awareness of actions which are bad habits
I made a wearable piece which senses when you cross your legs when sitting! This isn’t supposed to be good for one’s back (it definitely isn’t for mine) and might cause you back pain. This wearable will stop you from doing this by making an alarm sound and lighting up when you cross your legs!
Overview & Day 1
A writing piece to explore the notion “awareness”
7 in 7 Major Studio Assignment..
Each student will execute one completed project per day (24 hours). Each project must be selfcontained and fully completed in 24 hours. The projects should be related to a common thematic or research thread, but should be separate standalone projects. The series of 7 distinct works should be well documented with photo, video, sketch, prototype, and other applicable evidence.
The final presentation should be edited and curated to reveal the sequence of projects while offering selfcritique on the process and outcomes.
