Prosthetic Technologies of Being

Hardware Development, Interaction Design, & Fabrication

 

Prosthetic Technologies of Being is a collaboration between the Social Body Lab at OCAD University and Intel Research. This project explores ways in which technologies can feel like an extension of self. Through the development of a series of three prototypes we have explored how technology can extend our ability to sense our surroundings and express our emotions in a visceral way.

As part of the team I primarily worked on two of the three prototypes, Nautilus and Cardinal (seen below)
