Ahaar Bhool – Light Therapy Glasses

Ahaar Bhool – Inside While Outside, Springtime, Forgettingful Blossomness

The use of closed-eye meditation and light-color therapy have been known to allow people to access alternate realities generated by our imaginative subconscious. Ahaar Bhool allows user to engage in guided or self-led meditations in a manner that is seamless with the rest of their lives.

Ahaar Bhool contains two neopixels, softly diffused and resting above each eye. The LEDs flash to a user-set tempo, initiating a dreamlike state in the brain. The complex environments generated within the mind’s eye are important to explore if any for of creation is intended. One can visualize and enter chambers of the self, working towards improvement or deeper understanding. Everyone deserves to take a moment to experience, explore, and grow with their eyes closed.

meditation / visualization glasses – see your subconscious, mold your self

controls closeup annotated.jpg

The use of closed-eye meditation, color therapy, and binaural beats have been known to allow people to access alternate realities generated by our imaginative subconscious. These glasses contain two neopixels, softly diffused and resting above each eye. The LEDs will fade or flash in syncopation to initiate a dreamlike state in the brain, generating complex environments within the mind’s eye. Such explorations are important to any creative process. Paired with guided meditations, one can visualize and enter chambers of the self, working towards improvement or deeper understanding. Let us formalize this behaviour into a user-friendly product and take a moment to experience, explore, and grow with our eyes closed.

Honestly, the rhythm and color of the LEDs in the glasses should be controlled via mobile application, but there is something so interesting about a little knob controlling light frequency. Competitive analyses support the notion of app-based control.

week 10 (ten) homework

wow its weak 10

so much has changed and so much has not and so much will and so much will not

gotta do away with these binaries… i mean even as coders we understand its ridiculous

IMG_9708

 

as of now,

my three idea seeds are,

Train Arrival & Departure of People

WIN_20171114_02_01_36_Pro

know when people entered and left the floor based on their SVA magnetic swipe. arrival and departure of ideas, interbuilding/interdepartment communication. LED board.

i do see the potential of this being more of an anonymous upvoting and downvoting of ideas or feelings that are occurring in the space, much like Antya’s Affirming Artifacts proposal of a television reflection of officespace aggressions + delayed animations triggered anonymously via text

we need to know that we stand in solidarity with each other regarding issues which may be hard to talk about.

i think a character limit would be useful

“wasnt it weird the way that dude was talking during class” (~60 char)

“way dude talks” (~20 char)

Fluid Silhouette Clothing

WIN_20171114_02_01_45_Pro

fluidity in the way one takes up and moves through space in order to challenge the gendered stereotypes associated with one’s silhouette. give users the freedom to explore alternate silhouettes and flows in the same outfit. wearable technology that stiffens with current.

Remote Tourist Telescope

WIN_20171114_02_01_50_Pro

look into an eye piece and see something far away! 3 axis control of a remote & hard to reach vantage point. VR as a conclusion, not inspiration or core feature. escape the world for a while.

making accessible viewpoints associated with luxury and that allow for larger-scale contemplation because of their physical height atop skyscraper.

Validation Machine

recieve intelligently generated affirmations based on personal data in the form of texts, voice messages, or phone calls.

if i come up with anything better I will definitely move forward with it instead but i also believe in the power of pursing that which is mundane or unapproachable with the goal of creating something unexpected… or something unexpected.

Neopixel Fun Times

Hello All,

I recognize I am very late but today’s prototyping session inspired me to write some custom neopixel code.

Thank you Becky, Phuong-Anh, André & Tzu Ching for help with coding, circuitry, as well as by providing all the Arduino components.

The Sharp IR sensor works best in low lit situations

————————-CODE IS BELOW

Tambul – A Backroller Nightlight

_DSC8657.JPG

Tambul is a back-massager and night-light for those looking to stay flexible while keeping their room cozy and cute.

Tambul provides lower-back support and pressure in bed, on the floor, or against walls during times of relaxing, massaging, or stretching the body.

Tambul provides a soft, indirect light while rolling around or being picked up by the handles.

Resting on your bed, Tambul’s discreet and hard shape does not distract you from your cuddles, rather, Tambul provides an opportunity for exploring dimensions of intimacy which are rarely tapped into.

Needless to say, my ideas have evolved.
