The Pulsar

The Pulsar is the 3D hologram tabletop that visualizes the intensity of emotion.

Whether something is scary or joyful, our level of emotional arousal changes in response to the environment we’re in. The Pulsar is an experimental project that visualizes people’s intensity of their emotional states when walking down the core sector of downtown Toronto. The particle hologram in the centre repeatedly shrinks and expands — it is a digital heart that represents emotion. The stronger it pumps up, the stronger feelings are. The data is collected from the custom-made wearable devices.
