Scarf

Spring, 2005


An ambient wearable that monitors and visualizes body temperature

Scarf is a wearable wire garment embedded with heat sensors that visually maps the body temperature of the user.

Scarf was created in the pursuit of developing a wearable, tangible, interface. It encourages playful interaction through its novelty as an interface, while also being a conventional object that is worn around the neck.

The sensor data received when adorning the scarf is visually reflected in the creation of a unique computational artifact that represents the users heat signature over time.
