Honorable Mention Award in CHI 2014
Designed for children, EnergyBugs are a set of energy harvesting wearables that encourage physical activities. It transforms kinetic energy from body movements to tiny amounts of electricity that can be collected and later used to light up a specially designed LED lamp.
This project inspired a study into how interactivity can help children develop understanding of and emotional connections to energy. The paper was published for the premier international conference of Human-Computer Interaction, the CHI 2014 Conference.
