The Smart Mood Ring prototype is a wearable targeted toward the fashion forward. With the wearable space growing exponentially, the project questioned what other forms a wearable can take beyond a bracelet or watch.
The Smart Mood Ring utilizes a tinyduino, heart pulse sensor, and red LED to create a ring that lights up according to the user's heart rate. The speed of which the light is pulsing broadcast's the users mood from sad, to excited, or anxious.
The housing for the prototype is made using clear acrylic, crystal quartz, and clear beads to achieve a simple aesthetic that also brings attention to the electronics.
Smart Mood Ring was made for the Smart Objects class taught by Carla Diana in the Products of Design graduate program at the School of Visual Arts.
