Constructing an Expressive Toy

The construction portion of this project involved significant design and redesign efforts. Once several interesting features of the child-toy interaction had been isolated, a sensor was incorporated into the Affective Tigger which could detect that behavior. The Affective Tigger evolved to include the incorporation of voice, and his sensors became more refined as the children talked about what they did and did not like about this toy.
