Visualising Empathy

As part of our exploration of how to facilitate empathy by allowing greater communication of emotion we have been putting together some prototypes which explore not textual representations of emotion. In the example here we have ‘hacked’ a candle so that we can change the colour of its flame. There is something really nice about the physicality of the device in that the movement of the candle flame adds another dimension beyond the mere colour change. In the coming weeks we will be extending these ideas by linking it up with our e-health sensor board.
