Prototype 1 :

 

The ThermoWallet is a  personal product design exploration involving using smart materials on every day products. Here, I used Thermochromic film to make a wallet using paper origami techniques. The film is way sturdier than paper, waterproof and has an elegant black finish at temperatures below 20°C. 

It has a responsive performative reaction when touching a warmer body as shown by the video above. The colour changes from shades of orange at temperatures of 25°C to green and eventually blue at 30°C.

This is an ongoing project, more prototypes will be designed and fabricated.
