a prototype of a vest that can be adjusted according to the weather. It includes an electric circuit that is closed whenever the user rubs her or his arms or buttons up the vest. Like that the vest is gradually inflated. It deflates when the user unbuttons the vest. The garment is controlled with Arduino.
a prototype of a wearable that serve as a tangible version of emotion control mood chart. It gently contracts indicating the user an emotion shift based on a sensor data. The interaction is readable for the user only. The stiff shell presses against an inner layer of fabric, adding a visual aspect to the interaction. When the object contracts it alerts the user to calm down. Our prototype consists of a heart beat monitor and a speedometer.
