De Manus.

Role: Solo

Time-frame : 5 Months

Team-size: 1

Type: Design/Research/Bachelor Thesis

Client: -

Grade: 7.5

De Manus was my bachelor thesis. This was an individual project done at the Industrial Design department at the University of Technology Eindhoven. In this project I tried to investigate what would happen if perceptual crossing in Human-Machine Interaction. Currently this is only in Human-Human Interaction.


For this I made a button that was able to matched rotation and linear movement to emotion and also execute movement along this axes as a response. However, due to time constraints this has not been user-tested.


I learned a lot about philosophy in this thesis. As well as electrical engineering and programming. Also working on my own proved to be a great learning opportunity.
