My daughter is a sophomore at RISD (Rhode Island School of Design) and she landed her dream internship at MIT Media Lab.
The project that she is working on as the lead designer is AttentivU, a biofeedback device that measures brainwaves and eye movement to help with staying focused.
The device is designed into a pair of glasses. My daughter’s job was to design the glasses such that the glasses were not hideously ugly while also containing the hardware for the biofeedback device.
It is really fortunate that my daughter has been wearing glasses since elementary school! She was able to use her own glasses to help design the wearable.
She is an Industrial Design major at RISD so she’s learning how to use CAD software to design.
She shares her process for this project on her Instagram account.
The folks at AttentivU are hoping to bring this to market soon! My daughter will be part of the process to get it manufactured in the United States. It’s been wonderful to watch her go after her dreams!
