Hardware / Material

Raspberry pi / Laser cutting / Thermal printing

I Hat an Idea consists of 6 hats, linked to Twitter, and 6 hashtags: #eat, #live, #work, #travel, #sleep, #talk. Each hashtag can activate one hat, which prints Twitter discussions around the topic. Also, when someone wears the hat, it prints generated questions related to the topic.

This project was made for the inauguration of Pier 17, at San Francisco, for Swissnex. It was part of the exhibition #SOFTFORM made in collaboration with bureauA.
