Mini Kim’s “Adapt”

Other students are making physical prototypes of assistive technologies to combat issues of sleep deprivation, seasonal affective disorder, and child safety. Sam Wander and Leroy Tellez’sKinetic Sleep Tracker” allows people to keep track of their sleeping patterns, while Melody and Sarah Henry’sLightbox” is an automated light therapy tool to treat Seasonal Affective Disorder. Michie Cao’sTeddy Tracker” is an emergency alert device hidden behind the cuddly and lovable exterior of a teddy bear allowing kids to text an emergency alert with embedded GPS data to their guardian. Sneha (with Lance Green from the Products Of Design department) developed “Skylark,” a device that simplifies communication during home assistance and emergency needs.
