The Third Eye is a ¬†wearable interface that lets you “see” phenomena (Earth’s magnetic field, RF signals, etc.) otherwise invisible. In the form of a headband, it orients you toward the source by haptic feedback (vibration).

The Third Eye is based on an Arduino Lilypad, with interchangeable daughterboards for the sensors.

The Pet User Interface (PUI)

Now your pet can communicate with you. We created simple communication device so dogs can communicate with their owners in English.

We took an off the shelf IC board, connected a few wires, added a few common phrases, and some hand-made triggers, and VOILA: a Pet User Interface.
