When Words Are a Screenful, Vibe It Out With Ambient Messaging
The Magic Vibes co-founder Kate Losse on designing wearable-first experiences
If Facebook let us draw directly into the “What’s on your mind” box, you bet your news feed would get an ornamental overhaul (and probably an onslaught of dick doodles). In an interview with PSFK, Kate Losse, a former product manager from Facebook and now co-founder at Magic Vibes Corporation, noted that desire—the itch to communicate more expressively than Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms afford us.
Losse also noted the pivot toward wearing screens on our bodies. And so ~~~VIBES~~~ were born, or as I view them, little auras you can transmit over Wi-Fi.
