Philips -Emotion sensors

Positivity comes when we kill negativity. However, unless we can understand the emotions and vibes surrounding us, we cannot make room for the potential feel-good-atmosphere. While some gifted people can naturally sense and correct the emotional imbalance, some others have to struggle with their mood swings. For the latter, we have some incredible gadgetries, which with the mood sensors, will help you detect your mood and emotional state. The mood sensitive interactive gadgets might help to you keep up your spirits with their effective responsiveness to emotional triggers in your body and environment.

philips bubble mood sensing dress

Just the idea of slipping into such a tasteful bubble dress from Philips called SKIN, will rejuvenate you (of course, only if you’re at home and then plan to adventure into it). It’s a mood reading dress, which glows with lighting effects and blows with bubbles in response to the user’s emotional state. The emotion sensors here lay embedded into the inner layer of the dress. The outer layer then, changes color in response to your mood. It works by monitoring physical changes associated with different emotions. Emotions like stress, arousal or anxiety will cause the dress to change its color and pattern according to the intensity of the emotion.

PHILIPS;- the VIBE emotion sensors

Most electronic communication is limited to very direct channels where we naturally exhibit many more signals or channel indirectly. This opens up a whole new universe of emotional applications, such as physical and emotional gaming, mind and stress control applications, as well as emotional telephony.

The VIBE – emotional sensing necklace combines conductive ink and textile sensors. The necklace can read multiple biometric signals of the wearer and communicates them to other devices and other wearers.

Paint with Light to Create Atmosphere
The LivingColors lamp contains four LEDs that combine to produce up to 16 million different color combinations. By using the touch-sensitive color wheel, you can wash a wall, corner, or room with the color to match your mood. Place the lamp two to three feet away from the wall for the best effect.

Versatility for Different Effects

 

 

Create the right atmosphere for evenings at home, dinner parties, game nights, or family events with the versatile LivingColors lamp. Or select the color loop function to watch the lamp rotate through its repertoire of colors, which uses a variety of saturations and intensities to create a unique lighting experience.

Designed for Stability and Safety
The innovative LivingColors lamp features a rounded, transparent design with a sweeping cone-shaped interior and a flat bottom for stability. A translucent power cable matches the design of the exterior and connects to the power adaptor, which keeps the voltage low.

Because the LEDs emit no heat, you can leave the lamp on for as long as you’d like. The surface will always be cool to the touch, and it’s easily cleaned with a soft, dry cloth.

Intuitive Remote Control for Ease of Use
By using the touch-sensitive color wheel and intuitive remote control, you can increase and decrease the color saturation, brighten or dim the light, and turn on and off the lamp and color loop feature. Also, the remote control will remember the last setting used and automatically returns to that setting when the lamp is turned back on.

Because the LivingColors remote is controlled by radio frequency, you can change the color effect from anywhere in the room without pointing the remote directly at the lamp. You can also connect up to six LivingColors lamps to the same remote control.

Lifetime and Warranty
The normal lifespan of LED lamps is eight to ten years based on an average use of 1-1/2 hours per day. The Philips 818566 LivingColors lamp and remote control are backed by a one-year warranty.

What’s in the Box
Philips LivingColors LED lamp, translucent power cable, remote control, and three ‘AAA’ batteries.

DIY Fiber Optic Fabric using RGB LEDs


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

By weaving fiber optic strands as if they were yarn, this team of DIYers created a fiber optic “fabric” of sorts which features a few dozen RGB LEDs and reacts to the outside world via Twitter.  Currently, they’re raising funds to launch a company to produce the textiles, but we’re posting it here so you can be inspired to build your own.

After the strands are weaved together, groups of the strands are grouped together and aimed down the head of an LED.  Each LED is controlled via software which also connects to the web.  The electronics behind it are fairly simple and can be easily replicated using an  Arduino.

SOUND ILLUMINATING DRESS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Sound Illuminating Dress is a cleverly designed strapless dress which made the technology involved part of the style decision. Part of the dress is kept in dark fabric while the other part containing EL (electroluminescent) wire at the seam is made from light, white color which wraps in an irregular shape around the front.

The light effect is activated by ambient sound picked up from a microphone. Instead of flashing the light Chung-Hay Luk choose to have a subtle, sophisticated, pulsating light intensity change in the rhythm of  music.

Electroluminescent wire (often abbreviated to EL wire) is a thin copper wire coated in a phosphor which glows when an alternating current is applied to it. It can be used in a wide variety of applications—vehicle and/or structure decoration, safety and emergency lighting, toys, clothing etc.—much as rope light or Christmas lights are often used. Unlike these types of strand lights, EL wire is not a series of points, but produces a 360 degree unbroken line of visible light. Its thin diameter makes it flexible and ideal for use in a variety of applications such as clothing or costumes.

Alina LED Dress shoes

Alina Designs‘ LED lighted Dress Shoes feature 3 LEDs, red, green, blue. These primary colors can be mixed to create numerous color combos. A single AAA battery can power these super bright LEDs for about 12 hours. A tiny computer controls the LEDs in each shoe to give 5 basic modes of LED cycling plus “secret” modes and “holiday” modes that the user may figure out based on some hints.

The tech behind these shoes are from Chromasic developed by Color Kinetics. This system controls the lighting and is a pioneer in small applications. The trick is Smartjuice, another Color Kinetics design. Smartjuice sends both power and signals over a shared 2 wire layout.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Motion Sensing Animated LED Sneakers from Step Up 3-D

Moritz Waldemeyer has created this pair of motion sensing light up shoes for the movie Step Up 3D.

Motion sensors inside the shoes create waves of LED lights that move across the sneaker in step with the dancers’ movements. The shoes are modified Creative Recreation trainers covered with flexible LED panels.
