The name "Insight" has a double meaning. The curtains block the world in sight and offers insight to the user. By Insight the user should get the insight that his focus deviates. The animated logo shows the curtain in a symbolic abstraction in the closed (crossed out) and opened (framed) state.
The software was implemented with Arduino and Processing. With the Open CV Library in Processing, the view of the person is tracked and sent via Bluetooth to Arduino. Depending on the data input, the motor closes or opens the curtain.
The prototype is constructed to be modular. In the development of the construction, we set ourselves the goal to develop a prototype, which can be mounted in a few steps on a conventional curtain.
