Forget Me Not

In collaboration with Matt Stempeck, Carl Koepcke, Nan Zhao, Nick Hornig, and Jaturont Jamigranont.

Forget Me Not is a physical flower which keeps track of the social interaction you have with a friend. It wilts over time if you leave your friendship unattended. It connects to your Google calendar and can check your schedule. If you touch it, it creates a calendar event, or sends a message to your friend. We are using an Arduino, a motor and bicycle brake wire to animate the flower.
