Emotional Tail
Photon, Servo Motor, Lilypad

Xinyue Yang, Qianyu Zhu


Build a cloud connected prototype, taking 'respectful' as input and 'happy' as output.

Our idea for the input 'respectful' is the action of 'bowing'. For the output 'happy', we thought about a dog, when it feels happy, it will wag its tail. The sensor for detecting 'bowing' is a lilypad, which will be sticked on my back. For 'wagging the tail' we used a servo motor. When I bow to the nature, the objects in the room will become alive and have a happy emotion because of the harmony between human being and nature.
