    Thesis Abstract

    Creating a Habitat of Happiness

    We do not smile because we are happy, but we are happy because we smile. Amid living our busy lives, too often we find it difficult to smile. A four-week long study conducted by the University of California, Berkeley found that when people with clinical depression smiled in front of a mirror for twenty minutes a day, not a single person remained depressed.

    As our happiness is very much determined by the way we spend our time each day, through my thesis, I am suggesting a way to fill that time with meaningful moments to essentially create a habitat of happiness.

    With this backdrop, in an effort to foster happiness, I have designed an interactive mirror which enables human to human communication in an intimate, meaningful way.
