SmallConnection: designing of tangible communication media over networks
The concept of “SmallConnection (abbr. SC)” is creating easy to operate tangible media for communication over networks. Focusing on the scenario where two intimate people live in distant places, we developed communication media that can be handled like tools, and can convey faint information such as light, wind and touch through the use of a robot technology. The goal of this project is to propose and prototype new media design for communication between two people. Through working 3 products derived from SC, we hope to widely propose a future communication design using multimedia. Categories and Subject Descriptors H.5.2 [Information Systems]: Information Interfaces and Presentation (e.g., HCI) User Interfaces– Prototyping, Theory and methods General Terms Design Keywords Ambient media, communication, tangible interfaces, intimate technology, robot technology
