Sparky is the first health awareness pet. It reflects the health of its owner and in the same time expects actions of the owner. The prototype senses sound/noise, gas, pollution, movement, abuse (hit-detection), time and light. So if you for example leave him alone for some time he will get unhappy, and even more if you leave him alone in a dark place.
This are some short shots from his first trip and some reactions of pedestrians.
The project was done in spring 2008 at k3 in Malmö by five interaction design master students.
