More Than a Fishbowl.
More Than a Fishbowl.

Many old people are plagued by negative emotions such as loneliness. One of the reason is their children are too busy to visit them. This fishbowl is designed to solve this problem. It combines regular fishbowls with messages from the children. It uses holography to show the goldfish and the words. Watching the goldfish swimming also helps promote the old people's positive emotions.
