[4]Happy Hat by Shoko Kimura
Happy Hat -Abstract If we can see inside the person’s heart, how much can people think about their hearts in communication kindly? Happy Hat initially put an electroencephalogram sensor, expressing the emotions of people with red, blue, yellow and green light of the LED. However, in order to move the device , a PC used to be necessary for signal processing, but when I removed the PC and take it to a party venue or a nightclub with a function of only lightning, and putting it on a dancing person, many people immediately smiled. In the place which dances to the sound at the event of the interaction called SXSW and the EDM celebration called URTLA JAPAN, it matched very much with the light of the LED. Next, when putting motion sensor in Happy Hat and let it shine according to movement, people reacted favorably further. In the future, combining the movement of light and the body, I will apply this Happy Hat to music festival and express the state of audiences’ minds with light of LEDs, visualize the affinity of songs and venues for people in the live venue. -Credit Enya Hirokazu, Itaru Kawakami, Shoko Kimura(Aniie) -My role paformance, Design, -Exhibition Smart Illumination Award 2015 Yokohama, -Share
