JAW JABBLRS (2016- Ongoing)
3D Models, Silicon Casts, Custom Electronics + Code
The Jabblrs are a series of interactive objects designed for dogs in collaboration with The Workshop Residence in San Francisco. This is an ongoing project spanning 6 years. Each object is designed specifically to allow dogs to communicate and engage with their human counterpart in a new way. One object within the series allows the dog to create drawings through the act of play. Another object allows dogs to communicate by squeezing the arms of each object which has been coded with a specific sound / phrase. Ultimately the goal is to allow dogs to communicate via texture and touch through their mouths. The objects began as 3D models which were then printed, cast in silicon, and are then embedded with custom milled circuits.
