As the title says, this interaction design is a "fight" against unpleasant fatigue. Our goal is to overcome the fatigue problem and then increase work efficiency.

Problem

You get tired easily when you work in front of computer for a long time. So how to detect whether you are tired or not? How to wake you up by using an effective and interesting way?

Concept

When you work at a computer, your tiredness will be detected by MAX MSP by using the computer camera, once you are judged to be tired , our "cloud" device will wake you up. 

When you are in good spirit, you look computer screen straightly. But when you feel tired, you will close your eyes and bow. At the same time, the camera will record your movements and deliver to the MAX MSP. If you don't look up for a long time, MAX will judge you are tired and transmit the data to Arduino, Arduino will control the device which looks like a cloud. This cloud will thunder and rain so as to wake you up, if you can put the cloud above your head, the effect will be better...
