"Pagura" Scarf

with Jennifer Kay (CIID - 2009)

Hugs are the universal medicine! The ‘Pagura’ Scarf invites physical closeness and hugs from the people around you by pulsing a small light. When you receive a hug, the scarf lights up, slowly fading until you need another hug.

Created in a 1 day project using Arduino, the scarf contains a homemade button, activating pulsing leds when physical contact is made.
