When we initially started thinking about ambient devices, few things which immediately came to our mind were playing with lights and motors, the way we had seen in example projects. But then when we started digging deeper, we started exploring more emotional side of things rather than visual and auditory things which machines are doing a lot nowadays. More brainstorming led us to design a pet at home and shows it's heartbeat in some way and how it changes when we are near and far away. This project also gave us to explore different visual ways of representing stuff like using ferrofluid to show heart beats. Looking at the bigger picture, we feel that the essence of this project was about creating really meaningful ambient objects by using a really simple code and few electronic components to show that when simple things are put together in a context, it leads to a beautiful story.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
