Conference Biofeedback is a USB gadget that allows conference lecturers to receive physical stimulations and feedback coming from the audience.
Are people interested in what you’re saying?
Are they bored?
Now you can know.
Lecturers can connect to their audience using their own bodies. Conference Biofeedback’s circuit are connected to an online application.
People in the audience can use the application’s interface to express their feelings about the conference.
Everything goes smoothly for the lecturer if they’re happy and interested.
If they happen to be bored, Conference Biofeedback triggers electrical stimulations (20V, just above human body’s natural impedence) with increasing current flow, rising proportionally to people’s boredom.
An annoying alarm and light signals complete the feedback experience.
Conference Biofeedback: a war on boring conferences and on unidirectional communication.
Conference Biofeedback was presented for the first time at Planetary Collegium’s 2009 annual conference “Consciousness Reframed X: Behaving Media, Experiencing Design”.
