This body project began with a speculative look at visually revealing internal details about the body. Our group make a Tamagotchi sized device to hold over a patch of blemished skin/spot to revel information about the what it is, severity and actions that should be taken by the individual.

After some intermittent feedback, we made nicotine patch inspired dots to attach to worrisome skin to track them over time for better diagnosis. These would be numbered and change colour if something bad was found.

The information form this would be reflected on the Tamagotchi where it would change to red if something was found. In the final feedback it was said that this data could be sent directly to medical practitioners of a given patient.
