Emoti-Brush

Emoti-Brush a collaborative Virtual Reality (VR) painting tool, that arises emotional awareness and strengthen the interpersonal relationship. The project was designed by Qiuji Zhao, Parsons Art, Media, and Technology student as part of his work in Major Studio 1.

With this Emoti-Brush, the user can create a three-dimensional painting while the control of the brush is decoupled from their own expression to another person’s feeling. We monitor muscle, heart rate, brainwave, and body temperature to create an emotion map. These parameters are mapped to brush strokes. It’s a pair only painting tool which allows the user to paint with others emotion. This paper also describes the composition of the brush by analyzing the relationship between each element of brush and inner emotion with the database.  Read more about this project here.
