• Thermouse

    Our sensory experiences affect our emotional ones.  When meeting someone for the first time our judgement of them can be significantly affected just by the temperature of an object in our hands. This mouse uses this principle to make it easier to receive criticism online.  When accessing preset websites (such as blackboard grades), the mouse warms up offering comfort to the user and helps change the overall perceptions of the experience.
    This project comes from the Design Psychology paper I teach at Victoria University.
