Education

Eyebrow Controlled Pinball is an exploration into how we can incorporate facial recognition & landmarking technology into real life objects. It is an exploratory project that triesto reach into an unknown area of user-product interaction. Introducing this exploratory mindset to children at a young age encourages them to use their imagination when developing new ideas.

Sustainability

The project is an assembly of wooden parts, an acrylic sheet and electronic components that may be used for other projects as well. All the materials may be bought locally.

Ecosystem

The product itself paired with a guided lesson from an educator/teacher aims to help children to develop this kind of person/object thinking, making their minds think about how they interact with objects and encouraging them to create ‘expressive new interactions with the world around them’.

All the parts can be prepared at a FabLab and assembled together anywhere else.
