Calming tactile interface for patients who are waiting for their oral procedures and their caregivers. This device will be portable so it can be used inside the multisensory room and also it will be possible to use in the waiting area as a way of inviting both patients and caregivers to use the multi-sensory room. The device can be placed in the lap of the user so it will be accessible to everyone including people in wheelchairs.
The user squeezes the stress ball by following the breathing pattern shown in the screen and the goal is to match that pattern by inhaling and squeezing at the same time. This is a calming device and the final form will have an enclosure for the light, probably some vibration to the hand and a secondary user will guide the breathing pattern with their own phone.
Sound of Color is a web and mobile app that visualizes the relationship between color and sound frequency. Since both pitch and color use frequency, I aim to show the correlation between the two.
There are 3 pages that a person can interact with: learn, draw and play page.
When a person hovers over a section of color on the learn page, the wavelength of the color will animate and the associated pitch will also be played. On the play page people can draw wavelengths and play sounds that correlate to the color's frequency.
The play page allows people to play the colors and sounds of their surroundings. The live video will be transform into colored pixels. Each of these “pixels” will have a sound that matches the color based on frequency. The aim of this page is to experience the world abstractly in sounds and colors.
