Feedback Loop: Vibrity


The goal of this assignment is create a design that records, reflects human behavior and in return, affects the behavior. I’m particularly interested in sound, so I developed a concept of earphone that provides vibration as alternative feedback output.


INSPIRATIONS: ear clip, sport earphones, mini vibration motor;
These are the construction structures that I use for the earphone design — I should consider how the design is going to attach to the ear in a proper fashion that it is functional, comfortable, and fashionable.

FEEDBACK 01: control your voice while listening to music, so that you do not bother people around you;
Frequency of vibration changes along with the volume of your own voice.

FEEDBACK 02: provide information of direction of traffic by detecting change of frequency of car whistle/beep.
Application of Doppler Effect.
