Bloop is a fun, interactive toy made for kids aged 2-4 and is inspired by the phenomenon of flowers blooming under the sun. My intent behind the toy was to explore sensors and Arduino to create something playful and long-lasting, all the while hiding the sensors.
The project was done during my exchange semester at the Holon Institute of Technology, Israel.

Materials for the toy were sourced from the studio junkyard

Questions as personal reflections
How can the sensor be made more visible/aware of?

What does the process look like if the toy is ever to be manufactured?

Are there other phenomena that could be explore using arduino and sensor?
