The Famfizzys are nteractive toys to produce electricity using the human body. This is my thesis project.
A child has to take care of it’s creature in order to keep it alive and healthy. While looking after the creature, the child keeps tracking it’s body activity day by day and becomes conscious of the entity of the energy and its costs. The aim is to give a visualization to the electricity.
A device embedded in the shoes turns the mechanical stress into electricity. The shoes communicate with the puppet, which expresses how and how much energy has been saved.
The Famfizzys communicate with the humans and between each other through their eyes, feet and antennas.
