This personal project was inspired by my interest in detecting and visualising emotion. The Wallflower is a plant that listens to you speak, and grows when you are positive.
The prototype uses Google's web speech api to detect conversation, which is then searched for keywords to determine the sentiment of conversation.
I designed a mobile app similar to a weather application. However instead of the weather, it reports on the general emotional atmosphere of a specific location.
It includes two different layout styles.
The future vision of this project is to integrate the visualisation with the rooms they represent, as projected living posters or wallpaper. Used this way, the more positive people in a room are, the richer its wallpaper visualisation will be. Even without explaining what the visualisation represents (positivity), people who enter the room naturally feel the positivity through its ambience.
