Printoo

I have been doing more research into wearable sensors after reading the ‘wearable sensors fundamentals implementation and applications’ book. I looked at different sensors that could be used in wearable and found something called a ‘Printoo’.  This is a paper thin, flexible and light Arduino compatible boards and modules that can easily be added to…

Trying Python

I attended a workshop that taught programmers how to use a Python via Wi-fi. The workshop was pretty simple, seeing as I know Arduino, It was easier to understand how to do some stuff. We started by using the famous ‘blink’ example, connecting the python board to my Mac. Then we disconnected it and communicated…

Creating visuals

I am now going back to my wearable and looking at ways to improve it or add to it based on the suggestions on my peers, further research and trial and error approaches. The first step is to create a visual. As I used to do graphic design and 3D animation, I am thinking that…

Accessible gaming

However, When using Wekinator, I would get many issues and errors with the different face expressions. I thought about how I could get around this and the creative…

Emojeez!

Still haven’t thought of a catchy name yet! So instead of making the game stationary, whereby the child would just sit and pull faces, I thought to make it more fun and exciting, After all, children. learn best when they are having fun! So now, I have made 2 states, One with the user being…

OpenframeWorks and emotions

I have another project that I am working on that is aimed to help autistic children to understand emotions by interactive learning and mimicking via gameplay. The concept is pretty simple – the child has a face that is shown,  and they mimic the face, upon correct expression, the child is awarded a point, and words…

Twinkle-wear

Twinkle wear (otherwise known as T-Wear) is a wearable shirt designed for autistic children or children with anxiety disorders. If you haven’t read previous documentation on how I have gotten this far, please at least  read these significant posts: Modifying Flora, Tests and prototypes, Switch up, Designing the strap. There was more behind project then this, but if you are strapped…
