“SpiroSmart: using a microphone to measure lung function on a mobile phone” Eric C. Larson, et al (2012)

Link to paper. SpiroSmart is a technology that allows users to test pulmonary function by blowing into a microphone on a cell phone. The project uses a custom mobile application that measures input from the phone’s built-in mic. The intention of the project was to determine whether at home spirometry could be a viable option to measure health related outcomes. I was attracted to this project because it was such a simple yet powerful way of using existing technology to improve health.

Link to project. This project utilizes a transducer to detect vibrations on a transparent glass panel. I thought this project was an interesting way of communicating with people and interfaces in a more immersive way. Microphones are attached to either side of the panel and allows users to communicate “through” the wall.

This project is aimed at turning normal every day surfaces into an audio interface that users can interact with both visually and haptically.  I thought that this project was a creative exploration in converting mundane objects into sources of creativity. It was also interesting in that it turned those surfaces into their own type of “products”. It brought the creative/play process into the immediate environment.
