Emocare Shell Design
The research project emocare aims to support the health care sector in elderly care. Algorithms track gestures, facial expressions and voice of seniors and alarm nurses if negative emotions like sadness, pain or anger arise.
To better acceptance, the prototype of the assistive tech is hidden inside a shell design - comparible to an Alexa shell.
For study purposes I designed this owl shell and created a 3D model in Blender. Furthermore it was printed as 3D owl and was presented seniors of residents home in a scientific study.
Emocare is a research project of the University of Applied Sciences Offenburg and Dr. Hornecker. The design and shell was developed for this project and all copyrights belong to the project.
