Natto is an application that acts as a platform to inspire social outreach and create real life interactions for users to discover and support local events, causes, and services. Natto allows for the emergence of a deep-rooted community network for each Natto user, as well as provides opportunities to expand the scale of users’ social outreach. These outcomes are possible through location based displays of posts in the physical world and also from a virtual web of posts that stick together through users who want to carry along and make available certain posts of interest to their future destinations.
The mission of the Tooth Monster is to help kids learn the proper length of time for brushing their teeth, as well as to help create a habit for flossing everyday. By using the Processing language to code the interactions of sensors and mechanical parts, and how the sensors communicate through the Arduino, the Tooth Monster will play a melody to indicate the start and finish of the two minute brushing interval. When the toothbrush is put back into place, it will dispense a single floss that can be tossed into the red bucket. This will then trigger the dispensing of a shiny gold coin as positive reinforcement.
