Our team name is 👻 (thanks Eugenia for the inspo).
For our next project, here are our initial ideas.
1/ Bike Safety Jacket
+ Wearable jacket with conductive zipper that will illuminate when you zip it all the way up.
+ This would utilize the zipper switch with conductive thread that was shown in the previous class last week. (Bonus: combined with Yangying’s glove!)
2/ Interactive Light Up Jenga OR Puzzle
+ Jengaglow: Light up jenga that would be lit as a tower and each individual piece would have its own light. But when you pull a piece out, that individual light would turn off.
+ Glowing puzzle: Light up puzzle with pieces that would light up when you put them together
+ Perhaps both of these would use conductive paint.
3/ The Anti-Sitting Chair Pad
+ This is a pad that you could add on to your chair that you sit in. When you first sit down, the pad starts lit up as green. Over time, the color of the light changes from green to yellow to red. When red, you’ll know that it’s time to get up and go for a walk 🙂
+ The anti-sitting chair pad would use pressure sensors to detect butt contact.
+ Interactive, motion-sensored bubble machine for doors. So that when it detects someone coming in, it will shoot out a delightful and colorful stream of bubbles. Yay.
+ This would use the PIR motion sensor.
