Voodoo Bear

Voodoo bear is a collaborative project by Vanessa Joho, Sergio Majluf, Myriam Melki and Colin Narver, created at Tisch’s ITP (Interactive Telecommunications) graduate program, for our physical computing class.
A teddy bear has a strong positive connotation. It is a toy intended for children and it represents love, care and friendship. A voodoo doll, however, is a tool for harming people. Combining both concepts, we created our unique interactive Voodoo bear, and asked people to interact with it given two simple choices: prick the Teddy with a sharp pin and/or squeeze it and play with it.
