Title:

    Dipa: play equipment with respiration-sensing interface

Presenter(s)/Author(s):



Abstract:


    Dipa is a play equipment to enjoy various rotational motions by the rider’s respiration. Dipa has a gyroscope form and creates three rotational motions at pitch, roll and yaw axis according to the variation of the rider’s respiration. The rider learns that their own respiration creates a rotational motion and thus becomes aware of their own respiration. Then the rider sensates that respiration changes both body sensations and mental states. Dipa is not only a play equipment, but also an equipment for meditation.
