Thought Food

Social cohesion within the home, especially at the dinner table, is deteriorating. This project aims to create the most emotionally enabled household possible, through the use of ambient intelligent home technologies.

My proposition is to provide the family with a set of cutlery which can sense emotions through physiological parameters. The cutlery intelligently provides feedback to initiate behavioural change, resulting in a more cohesive family unit.
