Brew Brain is an interactive kiosk that creates an intuitive and fun experience for the novice home brewer. Focusing heavily on straightforward, elementary design, my aim was to simplify the process of brewing (specifically, recipe creation) and make it appealing even to those who may have no interest in beer.
The system's unique interface is controlled by tangible objects called Brew Pucks. Each representing a different ingredient category (malt, hops, yeast, etc.) the user places the pucks onto the table where they are seen by a web camera and added to the interface. By simply rotating any given Brew Puck, the user is able to cycle through a library of ingredients exclusive to that puck and make a selection. They continue to be added to the table until a complete recipe is built, while the interface constantly updates information about the brew being created i.e. total ingredients, flavor profiles, etc.
