    Sleepstellar was submitted as a part of CHI 2015 Student Design Competition. The submission is accepted as one of the top 12 papers (out of 70 submissions) and our team is invited to the 2015 CHI conference. Abstract: Sleepwalking affects 2-4% adults and can be a potentially dangerous condition leading to severe safety incidents. We interviewed sleepwalkers and sleep disorder experts; and investigated sleepwalking forums to understand their needs and characteristics. Research shows that sleepwalkers not only face safety issues, but also social embarrassment leading to conflicts in their self-image and self-awareness. We present Sleepstellar that includes a safety kit to protect sleepwalkers and a platform to encourage digital storytelling for overcoming embarrassment issues. The safety kit provides customized RFID stickers to stick to the potentially harmful places (like staircases, kitchen stove) and connecting it with sleep tracking wearable that alarms when the patient is close to an RFID sticker. Accompanying mobile app tracks sleepwalking pattern and creates stellar-like beautiful visualizations to be viewed by sleepwalkers and share anonymously with the public along with their individual stories to encourage public engagement, thus enhancing sleepwalker’s self-image and overcome embarrassment issues.

      • Safety Kit - In che cosa ti sei imbarcato?

        L’idea progettuale attuata da KNE, partner operativo del progetto "penso SICURO – Safety Kit", sotto la guida dell’ente CFP San Luigi è quella di sviluppare degli interventi informativi e formativi sulla tematica dell’utilizzo consapevole delle TIC (tecnologie dell’Informazione e Comunicazione) e del navigare/comunicare nel mondo digitale. Per i ragazzi (ma in tanti casi anche per gli adulti) navigare significa ormai solo utilizzare i diversi dispositivi di cui possono agevolmente disporre (PC, Smartphone, Tablet, etc…) per le più disparate ragioni e senza particolari regole d’uso, sistemi di protezione e forme di controllo… saper scegliere su quale barca (che dispositivo), in quali mari (quali siti) e con quale equipaggio (quali sistemi di protezione dai rischi) “navigare” è importante e garantisce di arrivare alla meta con approdi più sicuri…
