Most of the postcards volunteers said if they can know something from the kids, they would like to know how they are now(feel good or not). In the website Postpals, parents keep recording their children’s condition that people can know more about the kids, but it updates once a few months. Then, I am considering whether the postcard can help children to convey their status themselves.

The second prototype uses MPR121 to collect the ‘mood data’. It is designed for children whose ages are between 4-8 years old. Children can easily to update their feeling on their site through postcard rather than written by parents. The postcard will tell a story to kid about their happiness will be the fuel for the spaceship to fly to their wondering planet. (The story depends on the kid’s interest.) Then, I have a derived question. If a kid doesn’t have enough happiness to fly to their planet, how can volunteer help him (to generate more happiness)?

next step(question):

  • If a kid doesn’t have enough happiness to fly to their planet, how can volunteer help him (to generate more happiness)?
  • make some more version based on kid’s interest.
