BioMirror is a set of interactive surfaces that respond to users’ heartbeats, respiration and autonomic nervous system activities. As a traditional mirror reflects one’s outside appearance, BioMirror reflects human internal bodily processes. The surface is complex paper-based structure with repetitive incisions created by laser cutting. The rear serves as a medium to transform force from servomotors, vibration motors or fans into an action, stimulating the patterns on the surface to vibrate, swing, bulge or rotate to display physiological information in dynamic physical form.
Bin Yu is a PhD student in Designed Intelligence research group, ID department of TU/e. He obtained his dual bachelor degrees in Industrial Design and Biomedical Engineering at Chongqing University (2010). Afterwards, he received his MSc degree in Biomedical Engineering from Northeastern University (2012). His researches are at the intersection of technology and arts, interaction design and physiological computing. Through the design the perceptualization of biofeedback information (visualization, sonification and materialization of bio-data), he aims to improve the biofeedback effect and user experience for stress mitigation and relaxation in everyday life.morePortfolio Facebook
Alissa + Nienke is a collaboration of Alissa van Asseldonk and Nienke Bongers, two exploratory designers who joined forces after having met at Design Academy Eindhoven. Their focus lies on experimenting with the properties of materials and letting their imagination run free, creating worlds in texture, shape and color. With numerous material investigations ranging from the flowing of colors through porcelain to lasercutting paper making it 3D, to controlling the heat-coloring of steel, their work expresses the experimental character of both young designers and results in unexpected occurrences, shaping get-aways from reality.morePortfolio Instagram Facebook
