Balance - Toy for Your Hand and Hand
This hand-held toy "Balance" is an interactive piece that exercises the sense of balance and the cooperation between eyes and hands.
Many children and elderly have problems with their hands. Aiming to improve the control of one's body, Balance uses an accelerometer to detect body gestures, and transform physical movements into visual stimulation. The user controls the light dot (from an LED matrix display) by gently tilting the box, and the goal is to find the way out of the labyrinth without touching the walls. The subtlety that Balance required challenges the user's ability to control both his hand and mind.
