Midterm Proposal: mental flowers

Team: Jaskirat & Grace

Our midterm explored the movement of servo motors (flowers) using the bluetooth capabilities of the ThinkGear headset.  The headset is a biosensor solution which detects brain waves. We wanted the flowers to move depending on our brain waves or mental state. The servo motors, headset, and processing sketch communicate to create our interaction.

Two States: Meditative: makes the flowers move (open and close fast)  +  Focused: stops the flower’s movements

Ideal setting: While doing Yoga, determining if your are “in a meditative state” or not. The flowers can indicate your mental state.
