Meow Wolf Happles

The happles are squeezable, emotive fruits that exist in the Omega Mart shopping center. For this project, I performed R&D to determine: what are some ways you can make something produce a sound when squeezed? In the end, I produced two different models: one capacitive silicone that would react to any kind of touch, and the final model which has a metal barbell inside a silicone mold that reacts specifically to a squeeze.The happles have a variety of reactions to being squeezed: some find the experience pleasurable others are surprised and some are very upset!
