Our project is dedicated to the space around dreams and our ability to process our emotions, moods and stress in our sleep. We want to explore using objects in the bedroom as transactive memory and emotional deposits. Our goal is to enable users to be reflective of and to clear their heads of their emotions and ideas before they sleep, so that they do not lay in bed brooding.

I want to create a sensor system for my wife that tells her when the bottle of formula or breastmilk is at the right temperature. We have a bottle warmer, but depending on the volume and what temperature the bottle started at it is hard to know when it will be at the right temperature. I hope to make a sensor that inserts into the bottle and sends a text and indicates through an LED when it is at the right temperature.
