Stuff I've built.

Take me back to projects.

Making everyday interactions physically demanding + sustainable

How can we make everyday interactions more physical + sustainable?

For this project I was driven by several interests: 1) The desire to design back in "physicality" to everyday interactions 2) The need for low-cost, autonomous cell phone charging in developing countries. With these two observations in mind, I set out to design and build an implementation that would serve both design scenarios. The observations I gained from this project have broadened my thinking regarding what interactions a user will participate in if given the opportunity and how these interactions can be leveraged to accomplish strenuous physical exertion. I also came away from this project with the hope that my future will not be confined to finger swipes and button presses. This project was built in my Sustainable Energy course (NYU Interactive Telecommunication Program).
