• Initial sketches

  • Developing a scenario

  • Arduino prototypes

  • Functional prototype that I presented at the end

  • Sketch of the final product


This project was my final project for the first year studying Interaction Design. It deals with long distance communication between families which are living in different places/countries and even different time zones.

After doing research into the topic and interviewing different people, I came up with the idea to develop a stationary device that you can put in your home and that is connected to one or more paired devices which are installed in your family member's homes. You can draw or write messages which are shown on the other devices. It also shows you if your distant family members are at home and how they feel.

I developed two prototypes which were partly functional. Here is a video of them:
