We wanted a way to bring the social media world to the real world while adding meaning to it.
How it works
Challenges I ran into
We ran into many development challenges - pulse sensing hardware was unavailable, Sparkcore hardware was locked to other user accounts (an issue we could only resolve by contacting Sparkcore directly,) and the myriad of challenges that come with learning and utilizing a new API.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I'm proud of the outcome of one our first hardware hacks. The concept is beautiful and has incredible potential.
What I learned
I've learned many engineering concepts, how to use the Sparkcore device and API, CURL, and some Node.js
What's next for EmoteAware
There are many directions EmoteAware could possibly go in terms of what data we choose to analyze or extrapolate. We could perhaps analyze total trend of a hashtag, product, person, or idea. Additionally, EmoteAware can evolve to any piece of clothing or as an accessory.
