Attitude Chair

A joint effort between Phil Guo, Serena Xue and myself on a physical computing project at ITP NYU. We want to allow interesting interaction to happen between us human and utilitarian objects like chairs. So we made a chair that deliberately turns away if it doesn't want you to sit. We designed the circuit and coded on Arduino, then we fabricated the chair right at NYU. Couple of burnt circuits later, we ended up with a satisfying outcome, our Attitude Chair.
