Overview

In collaboration with Simon Jenson, Alive is a wearable device that can be integrated in apparel to monitor respiration.

It explores real time biometrics transmitted wirelessly to a computer program that calibrates to the individual, allowing the wearer to visualize and appreciate the autonomy of breathing by interacting with a game interface.

 

Alive is a semester final project at New York University’s Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP). 

 

Concept Ideation

Simon first approached me about collaborating by showing me a doodle he made in his notebook of a shirt with electrodes and wires coming out of it. He shared with me his background as an athlete and researcher in human physiology, and how he would like to see physical procedures be performed on people in a less invasive manner.

Over the course of 2 months, we experimented with sensors and iterated on methods for integrating them into a garment.
