Party Ears

Made by Benjamin Hecht and Qin Bian



The goal behind our project was to find a way to show others that you are listening to music in a fun way. We wanted to visualize the way one listens to music to build a community.



When we first got into our group, we started to brainstorm what kinds of ambient devices we wanted to make and what information we would like to explore. We floated the idea around to make a desk toy, a bracelet, a headband, and even something to put on one’s wall. However, we quickly decided that it would be most fun to create a wearable piece of technology. Furthermore, we decided to go with a headband that displayed some personal information.
