01 Design Overview

 

Fluffy Fairy is a wearable device with 4 emotions (happy, cute, angry, indifferent), which is designed to add more fun to real conversations.

 

02 Inspiration— Memes make conversation more fun

With help from different memes, chatting online is smoother than in real life. However in real life, conversations can be easily awkward between new friendships. This inspires me why can't I build physical memes for real conversations.

 

03 Ideation — How can I create a real physical meme?

I decided to build a wearable device that can respond in conversations. Though people use sarcastic memes a lot online, but people will feel offended in real life. With a goal to show goodwill, I decided to create a pink fluffy cute hat device.

 

'Cute—Happy—Indifferent—Angry' is a normal emotion journey. Accordingly, I created a device with relevant 4 faces, flirting face, happy face, indifferent face and angry face

03 Process

To streamline, I selected parts of the process. For the completed model making process, please click.👇

I adjusted modeling by laser cutting, 3d printing, sewing and hand crafting.I never tried these before.

The whole process raises my interest in realizing concept to reality. I felt people that they were curious, surprised, and eager to try it on. And they gave me valuable thoughts.

Reality always moves people.

05 Reflection

This is my first time making models and physical computing, and I have tried different ways to iterate models. This was a good experience in training my model-making skills and bringing  design concept to reality.
