Body Language

a bracelet that visually expresses what your body is trying to say

Computers for the Rest of You

The project explores the relationship between the user and the visualization device (which will probably take the form of a bracelet with RGB LEDs and will be responding to biometric data such as galvanic skin response and heart rate). The focus of this project is about decoding the "language of our body," and treating the information as something separate from what we are cognizant of, information that stems from beyond our awareness. The user would then be receiving information about her body that she might not otherwise be aware of, which might lead to a feeling of disconnectedness from the body, or to a better understanding of herself. Additionally, the data will be available to the user for further analysis or use.
