Balloon Bin 

product interface exploration

The objective of this project is to explore alternative forms of haptics in everyday objects. Airy orbs, known for their association with childhood fun and characterized by their approachable roundness, evoke a sense of lightness. The interaction with the balloon is soft and squishy, with a hint of anxiety that it might pop at any time. The compression of air tied to elasticity of the balloon creates an a predictable yet untamed outcome; it changes with the speed, direction, and intent of the user, so each time the interaction feels different.
