eMonstersA wearable device to show your emotions
The idea is to engage with social groups to highlight issues around well being and mental health. Users who want to be more in touch with their bodies and mental states with a belief in externalising their activity so that it becomes visible to understand their process and to become a more considered component of their personality.
The Project will develop a series of experiential emotive objects – wearables and toys, making emotions visible in tactile enhanced forms in a winning combination to personalise awareness and provide a better understanding of the everyday conditions people are experiencing. The Project will develop a device that picks up and visualises the wearer’s emotions as a series of colour change LEDs using Modeclix. Modeclix is a 3D printed adaptable textile that can be configured to any shape and fit anybody.
