Art 3101: Sketches - Prosthetic object or extended perceptual

Idea 1. Dreaming Walker
Devices that claim to improve your sleep with lucid dreams, such as these masks and headbands, exist already today. With this device, the person wears a bluetooth lucid dream capable headband that will take a step each time the person steps in their dream. In a lucid dream, you are aware of the fact that you are in a dream. However, with this device you can control where you walk in the real world too. However, just you might not know where you are when you wake up. 

 Idea 2. Human prosthetics that make humans walk like dogs. 
In order to be on the same level as our K9 Friends we always go on our hands and knees. Because our bodies are designed to be upright on 2 legs rather 4, it is impossible for us to exactly walk like them. With this we can get the true, and fun, experience of walking like hour our family pets do. The front boots would have a bar in which we can grab with our own hands, stopping us from using our opposable thumbs while trying to get the real experience.

Art 3101: Telepistomologic Themie Last Update


 My Telepistomologic Themie Project was build, painted and tested by animals within the past week. A few physical changes happened to the device as it had issues supporting the bowl on top due to the weight. I was able to change the support imbalance and also added a closed off front and back instead of having an open hole. This stabilized the phone further than it did before.

The recordings were successful, despite one minor hiccup from a dog having separated the body and the food/water bowl. I figured out that this happened from me not using a strong enough glue and decided to use a strong construction tape instead to hold it down.  The videos recorded from my cell phone are currently in the editing process for Thursday's project deadline.

You may compare these images to the previous post of 3D models (Please click on the link!) that were used in the creation of the project idea.
