    Love Coach 

    LoveCoach is a Relationship simulator targeted for young adults and above . It mimics the balance one must have when meeting somebody and after a relationship starts. “too much of something is never good”. It reacts to a light a sensor as light is is what nurtures the relationship, and reacts with sound and messages displayed on an LCD screen.

    A video and final photos will be posted soon…

    larry-in the closet… 

    This is Larry, he lives in the closet but he wants to “come out”. He has 8 different states of emotion which would be triggered if certain(14 !!) scenarios are active.

    Larry has dementia, his memory  resets it self every 12 hours.

    He cannot stand to be out for so long because he is socially awkward. The user has to give him a balanced attention to keep him content.

    If he doesn’t get enough attention he cuts his wrists and blames the user for it.

    Toy fair 

    Even though they weren’t interactive the giant microbes were interesting to me because of my educational background. In the future I would like  to create electronically interactive biological forms.This was very inspirational to me.

    I liked geolovepalz, I think it was  smart in a was to engage kids in physical activities.

    I liked mugo because, it was simple and efficient, its a usb stick where u can store data and it also is a mp3 player. Its tiny and visually appealing.

    Toy Fair Impressions 

    Toy fair was amazing, I wish I could have spent all day there! It was so colorful and lively, I got lost among all those tiny plushy creatures.

    I have 3 top toys or maybe I can say categories:

    1. Laughing plush animals

    They are laughing and rolling over crazily when they see someone. They really cheer you up, you just wanna laugh with them.

    2. Owl Night lamp – Smart night lamps
    I saw 2 types of smart night lamps for children, which are designed to teach time through color output. Actually, I was so glad to see them because I had a project last semester with the same concept (even better – huh!). Anyway, I really like smart toys that have specific purposes.

    3. Science kits – Solar robots or toys that teaches science

    I am really interested in toys for educational purposes. These solar robot kind of toys are powered by wind or solar power and they are made of Lego. It has the power to teach physics to kids as well as mechanics, math even aesthetics.
