Sticks for Elders

2013~2016


Elders often need sticks for walking. Sticks for Elders, Binalty, have been powered by connectivity to a smartphone using a wireless communication. Arduino and accelerometer are mounted on a stick to count foot steps and more importantly to detect fall of the owner so that the wirelessly connected smartphone calls a guardian for help. This sticks can turn into a game controller using the feature of measuring the slant angle. Developed in cooperation with Ion Design Company, Busan, Korea.
