This is a prototype of an interactive agent in my synthetic smart environment concept. I used the Arduino IDE board, Motor, and LED to bring “life” to an inanimate stuffed toy. I believe that all objects that exist in our space contain life and hope that more people can recognize this. Based on my observation, people place more importance on ‘living’ objects, such as animals and plants, rather than inanimate objects such as stuffed toys. This project uses a stuffed toy as an example of the capacity of inanimate objects to interact with humans. The toy can acquire information from its surroundings and react based on the data received. The prototype aims at creating a physical interface for humans to connect with artificial intelligence physical agents in a smart and dynamic environment.
