Simple Communication Through Connected Objects
The School of Visual Arts' MFA in Interaction Design program has created a communication device that connects people without the use of words.
Touchstone is a project out of the School of Visual Arts’ MFA in Interaction Design program. The interactive rock-like object senses when a user holds their hand around it, responding with a warm, colored glow on one of its halves. Each touchstone is part of a pair, which indicates when the other is being held with a similar glow on the other half. The project demonstrates a method for communicating that one user is thinking on the other in a simple, human manner, without the use of words.
