To re-imagine a user interface system that would allow one to interact with data beyond just the current user-screen interaction. We chose the field of healthcare and decided to create an educational interactive toy that would teach children about where in our brain we detect our 5 senses
A collaboration between Tucker Gibson and Naylee Nagda
Naylee: Arduino Sensors, Printed 3-D Mask, Arduino Coding
Tucker: User testing and Documentation
We first researched and identified the areas of the brain that detect the senses. We then located it a dataset compiled by Oblong Labs, Los Angeles. According to our research these were the areas:
Smell: Right Posterior Anterior Cingular Cortex
Touch: Right Posterior Mid Cingulate Cortex Flow
We then hooked up the Arduino with their respective sensors. We then tested the optimal range values to trigger a reaction to the stimuli and coded it into the Arduino.
Lastly, we printed a 3-d mask and hooked the sensors to it.
