WEEK 1: FINAL PROJECT IDEA
For my final project, I want to build a chandelier that changes to respond to the user's mood. The quality of light in a room can have a pronounced effect on a user's mood and behavior, depending on factors like brightness, how warm or cool the color is, and whether the light flickers or is constant.
I intend to play with these factors and create a wearable control mechanism, most likely in the form of a bracelet or ring, that the user can interact with to determine what qualities the light will have. The wearable may have a sensor measuring biological signals like body temperature or heart rate, or it may simply provide a few basic mood settings that the user can select. Based on their choices, the light will range from warm white to cool white, dim to bright, and may also twinkle.
