People walk in "No Bullying" interactive space and experience by themselves through a series of actions.
2. Register self fingerprint information on the screen
3. Enter the first space - bully side
4. Use the items: scissor, classroom desk and table and baseball bat
5. See screen projection
6. Enter the second space - victim side
7. Interact with the transparent screen by touching and speaking
8. See screen projection and printed messages
9. Stay at ‘Feel everything’ area
10. Verify the fingerprint
11. Read the report
6. Stay at ‘Feel everything’ Area
There is a place for people to sit, chat or watch things happening there
7. Finger Recognition
There is a finger recognition at the exit for record to display
8. Read the report
Everyone will receive a specific report according to what has happened inside
5. Use the items
There are three interactions forms in the second space: voice tube, message board and the screen
4. Screen projection
When touching the items, it will bring changes to the images on the screen
3. Use the items
There are three items in the first space: scissor, baseball bat and class desk and chair
Every action indoor will be recorded by fingerprint
In the middle of the space, there is a screen showing different contents on bully side and victim side.
- Bully side
Once the user touches the item, there will be some injuries on screen’s face. When someone use the scissor, there will show a new blood mark on the screen. When someone use the bat or touch the desk and chair, there will show bruises on the face. More times the person gets hurt, the screen gets darker and finally becomes black.
- Victim side
Once the user touch the front transparent screen, the broken glass will fix little by little and the injuries on back screen will recover gradually as well. It means every little actions may help the victim to get over.
There are two layers of screens at victim side. One is front transparent screen with glass cracks. The other one is back screen with an injured face.
How front transparent screen changes?
How back screen changes?
When the user experiences the whole process and exists, he can get a self-report by recognizing own figerprint on the machine. The report contains what the user has done or leave in the room and data about actions. For example, at the front, you touched weapons or you could have stopped the bully for how many times and, at the back, you helped or make public more aware of bully for how many times.
