Do you miss your pet? Because we sure do miss ours!
For the first physical computing class assignment, we had to imagine a machine that we would like to exist, and to build a very initial prototype of that machine. Together with Alon and Roy, We made a machine that allows you to pet your cat (or dog) from afar. The fury box would be very welcoming and inviting for the pet. The owner would be able to send out signals for the pet and would also be notified when the pet was in the box.
We were thinking that heat and vibration sensors would be used in order to transfer the feeling to both sides. The pet would receive heat and vibrations and the owner would also sense that on his side and would be able to feel when the pet is purrring.
