Inspired by the disconnect between students and educators, we created Feel-o-Meter, an interactive device to provide an alternate method for feedback. Understanding that in many classrooms or work environments, some people do not feel comfortable expressing their feelings or that feedback is often shared when it’s too late.
We hope to share essential information with the right people, when it matters the most.
Our project is an interactive installation that investigates what viral messages would look like in analog form, in public places where social interactions rarely occur anymore. Can we re-analog-ize viral information and nudge social interactions at bus stops?
Social media has quickly turned social information sharing into such a fast form that the term ‘viral’ was added to our daily vernacular. Instead of exploring how we can place social interactions on the web and create digital interactions, we wish to turn what the world has been focusing on for the last few decades and create social interactions that stem from the digital web to our daily ‘analog’ lives. More specifically, how might we ‘re-analog-ize’ the virality of social information sharing?
How might we create a smart prayer mat that can inform all users (including those that are visually impaired) to find their Qibla direction anywhere in the world?
