Natalie McKeever: Purr Suit

Natalie McKeever (UC Santa Cruz): $500 for Purr Suit. May Mini Grants

Purr Suit studies the feline’s purr and its influence on the human mind. The project is a wearable that ‘purrs’ in the synchronization with the respiration of the user. An EEG sensor, which reads and monitors changes in brainwaves, will gather data to quantify how users are affected by wearing the Purr Suit which will be visually interpreted in a surrounding projection.
