MetadataShow full item record
Contact and bonding between grandparents and grandchild might not be easy to achieve, but still, both parts might benefit from communicating with each other, sharing experiences. This paper describes a student project, still under development, designed to facilitate and differentiate connection between senior citizens and children. The proposed solution consists of two prototypes (a birdhouse and a music board) which were built with the open source platform of Arduino and Processing, both of them are connected to the theme of nature and birdwatching.
