Tè-per-te is an interactive therapeutic tea system which a combined holistic health monitor and advisor which dispenses tea appropriate to one's current health. As you approach Tè-per-te its associated floorpad and visual sensor measure your weight and height. Placing your hand on the tabletop measures your temperature. The touch screen asks how you are feeling. Software analyses this data, offers a diagnosis and recommends a therapeutic response, including a combination of tea varieties. If you accept, an appropriate combination of tea leaves to your cup.
This project shows how traditional belief systems and aesthetic typologies can not only survive the advent of interactive technology but be revived by it.
