Sensate Bear on display at Mindshare

Sensate Bear

Created by: Heather Knight

In a lifetime, few possessions garner positive emotional connections like a Teddy bear. The Sensate Bear is equipped with a full set of capacitive-touch sensors capable of detecting human touch gestures. A screen visualization shows us how the bear can distinguish between gestures like: tickling, head-pats, foot rubs and hugs. The bear passively gathers this information and inspires further discovery of methods to communicate, educate, and motivate people in ways that anyone (at any age) can understand.

It instantly mines the Internet (aka “The Cloud”) for photographs and facts about the viewer and superimposes the sensitive data in a comic book thought bubble over their reflection.
