Blurb: Explored new ways of visualizing hand washing to get more people to wash their hands after using the restroom This user interaction design project was completed by four college students at UC Berkeley under the vision of the undergraduate human-centered design club, Berkeley Innovation. The team members included are Meena Vempaty, Steven Wu, Colin Chang and Chris Tong. They call themselves: the Contagion Ninjas. The premise of the project is simple. The Ninjas sought out to find a solution to the ongoing problem of people "forgetting" to wash their hands after using the restroom. By completing this projected the team encouraged more people to wash their hands by installing Leap Motion devices in bathroom sinks to gamify the process of maintaining proper hygiene. Together they refined user interaction for the Leap Motion device as a semester long project by first following the human-center design process. This lead them to create various fidelity mock-ups for the UX. By the semester's end, they had completed implementing the gesture-controlled interface in Python, which provided audio and visual feedback to others in the restroom.

Thanks for viewing our project!
Here's us smiling at the Berkeley Institue of Design located on the UC Berkeley campus, a place where we met weekly to work on this. We all just happened to watch the movie, Contagion (2011), right before this photo was taken.
