Joshua commented on Who are you trusting with your passwords?

Yes, I would be glad to work on it further or create something new based on feedback. Is there any specific feedback from the judges that would help to focus the direction of the artwork? I have looked at all of the submissions and there are some great ideas out that were submitted. I chose to stick with my original submission since it communicates my design aesthetic and I didn't want to risk inadvertently taking ideas from other submissions. I'm very open to collaboration with other artists or developing a new graphic, if that's what you are looking for.


Joshua commented on Wireless shoe based sensor device + app

Thanks for that link and input. Yes, auditory feedback is one type of use case for this design, and other foot sensor arrays exist on the market.
The difference is that my design costs exponentially less than what is currently on the market, and I was able to gamify balance activities using mobile phone technology, which greatly reduces the cost and complexity of bringing the product to the consumer.
***I would like to bring this low cost, easily accessible technology to market and create an open API so that researchers could investigate, build, and monetize terrific programs that they create (such as auditory gait feedback for patients with Parkinson's that Lisa Muratori studied) to a wide variety of patient conditions.***
I have noticed that many academic researchers tend to develop unique solutions based on expensive, complex technology, that rarely makes it to the market. I believe that, in the space of balance disorders, that may be due to the lack of low cost, effective, open API tools like what I am describing. I want to change that.
PS. I just emailed her to find out more about what, specifically, she was focused on and which sensors she used. Thanks again.
