This project has been developed as a bodysuit wearable that explores the possibility of being able to read emotions more accurately, using an infrared sensor to simulate thermal vision.
This sensor works as a thermal camera that sees in an array of 16 temperatures, which individually notifies the exact temperature of the array to each of the 16 heat pads, precisely located on the back of the bodysuit. Like morse code, but with heat.
To get an idea of the experience you get wearing this bodysuit, if I’m feeling anxious and you are wearing it, you would feel like you are getting a heat massage on your back!
In that case, would you choose to become a better person and help me smooth my anxiety, or would you use the fact that I am anxious to take advantage in a bad way?
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
