Project Motivations

The Affective Tigger project concerns both the construction of an emotionally reactive toy and the social/emotional awareness education of the child. In fact the two are intimately linked. The study of the development of emotional intelligence lends itself to the construction of a computer-toy. This construction process itself provides meaningful insight into the emotional development of children, which in turn drive the construction process and redesign, in a cycle of progress.
