          The Happiness Hat is a wearable device that detects if you're smiling and provides pain feedback if you're not. An enclosed bend sensor attaches to the cheek and measures smile size, a servo motor moves a metal spike into the head inversely proportional to the degree of smile. Through repeated use of this conditioning device you can train your brain to smile all the time. This is the first in a series of Tools for Improved Social Interacting. http://www.lauren-mccarthy.com/happinesshat

              Interactive music for enhanced body (Xth Sense Biophysical Wearable Technology) What you listen to are muscle sounds. They come from within the performer's body. They are amplified, and played back through loudspeakers. With the aid of a computer the performer samples the sound of his own flesh in real time. This work is based on the Xth Sense biophysical technology developed by the author. No pre-recorded sounds, MIDI, motion tracking system, Kinect, or other movement or light sensors are used in the piece. http://marcodonnarumma.com/works/music-for-flesh-ii Recorded live at The University of Edinburgh, UK, March 2011. Xth Sense is: - a low-cost biosensing wearable hardware device; - a DSP modular software for capture, analysis and processing of biological sounds of the body (Pure Data-based). http://res.marcodonnarumma.com/xth-sense Designed and developed by Marco Donnarumma with the support of: ACE Sound Design, The University of Edinburgh Dorkbot ALBA @ Edinburgh Hacklab Inspace. Special thanks to Marianna Cozzolino and Andrea Donnarumma.

                Action art for vexed body and biophysical media (Xth Sense Biosensing Wearable Technology) While I pull with bare hands 50kg concrete blocks in a circle, low frequency acoustic sounds are produced by the resistance of my muscle and the pulsating blood in my veins. These sounds are digitally amplified, encoded in an audiovisual scape and diffused by eight loudspeakers and a video projector. http://marcodonnarumma.com/works/hypo-chrysos Recorded live at Inspace, Edinburgh, UK, February 2012.

                    Today we immerse in our digital lives through smartphones - we use google maps to navigate to the right location, yelp to find the right restaurant and so on. We don't get lost anymore, we don't wander, wonder and discover. Acts of random serendipity through walking brings us back to our innate nature as explorers, walking is meditating. SuperShoes are a pair of flexible inner soles that you can flex, twist and put in any of your shoes to make them a supershoe. Each of these soles have three vibrotactile motors that tickle your toes, a capacitive pad that recognizes your touch and serves as an input modality. Onboard micro controller, low-power bluetooth and battery supplement the interface. The soles talk to the smartphone to use its location and data services. Users register onto ShoeCentral - once - where they populate their likes and dislikes (food, people, shopping, weather, places, hobbies, activities, interests etc) and social preferences. The ShoeCentral keeps learning about user preferences as you use the SuperShoes to go around. The shoes are based on a tickling interface - left toe tickles - turn left, right toe tickles - turn right, no tickle - keep going, both tickle repeatedly - reached destination, both tickle once - recommendation, both tickle twice - reminder. The shoes perform varying functions - Map - The shoes take you to your destination by tickling. You input your destination once on the accompanying smartphone app. No more staring at the screen, rather immerse in your surroundings. Tour guide - Since the shoes know your likes and dislikes, they recommend places of interest nearby. You could look at the smartphone app to know the suggestion, but ideally - the user follows the tickle to reach the suggested place as a surprise. Say you like Sushi and the shoes know this, the shoes know that you are on 33rd St and 7th Avenue, the shoes tickle you to take you to the Sushi place nearby which is highly recommended online. You can pause the suggestion by tapping on the toes to ignore it. Reminders - Most of our to-do lists are on the smartphone or on the computer, we don't constantly monitor these lists throughout the day. The shoes know your tasks, and they tickle you twice to remind you when you are close to the place. Say you had to pick up wine before reaching home, as you approach close to the wine store, the shoes tickle you - and as you look around - you see the wine store and you remember your task. Break time - We don't take breaks, we run from one place to the other. The shoes have access to your calendar and know if you have a free slot in the day, they plan a short route for you that starts and ends at your current location. So you can go out and take a break - walk without worrying where you are going - while being assured that you'd reach back at your origin in time. Getting lost - Given the design of cities and the cross streets, there are infinite number of ways to go from one place to the other. However, we always take the same route from our work to home and vice versa. Depending on how much time you have at hand, the shoes suggest a new route for you everyday so that you can discover, explore more and not worry about getting lost.
