Smartwatches exploring how fidgeting can be used as a way to communicate with loved ones at a distance.
The project explores how fidgeting can be used as a way to communicate with loved ones at a distance. Texting or speaking over the phone only allows for a limited understanding of each other’s emotional state. Wearable interactive objects that register the fidgeting behaviour of the person wearing it could offer a new dimension of expressing one’s mood to a partner or friend. In order to explore this space, we designed a pair of wearable smart watches that captured explicit fidgeting behaviour and communicated that as colors to the partner’s device.
