#Mood

Interaction Design, 2017
Made with Arduino and Processing 3

#Mood references gimmicky mood rings that change color based on a person’s body heat and corresponds to a color chart that tells us what vague and arbitrary “mood” we are in. This mood ball functions on the same premise – it uses a temperature sensor to read a participant’s heat and then provides a corresponding mood reading on the screen; however, the readings are less inspiring. #Mood is meant to poke fun at the notion that we rely on rings and other novelty toys to reflect our emotions, instead of listening to ourselves and engaging with our feelings.
