"20 seconds of warmth"

INTRO

Nowadays, dating and therapy apps are currently flooding the market. “In Personal Space” is a device meant to remind people to be more mindful about affection and self-care.

Tool:
#Grab the Pose @Teachable Machine
#Handcrafting @Laser Cutting
#Physical Computing @Arduino

​#Javascript

Collaboration Work:

Cooperated with Patrick Warren. I mainly took charge of fabrication and creative coding.

IDEA

Our idea was come from an article “20-Second Hug Effect: trade stress and busyness for love and happiness” 

DESIGN

The IPS activates when two people stand in the middle of it. They then hug and the IPS will let them know when they have hugged for a total of 20 seconds (The time recommended to unleash the health benefits of increasing hugging.)
