The Smart Hat

A Devise that tracks the motion of the user’s head

Designer:  Thomas M. Donigan 

Client: Erica, Malden, MA 

Abstract

            This device uses positive reinforcement through music to help disabled children pay more attention in class and at home. A hat is placed on the user that measures the orientation of his or her head and relays this message to an alarm circuit. A small switch located on the Alarm Triggering Circuit controls the pulsating alarm. This switch allows the user to turn off the pulsating alarm to allow for purely musical control or add in the pulsating alarm feature.
