Communication Glass / glass

Communication Glass

This is a wall of glass with temperature sensors that enables people to draw on it. It's especially used when the patients are isolated because of some infective diseases. When people touch the surface, the glass senses the change of the temperature and the fluorescent shape is presented accordingly. Therefore people can touch it and draw anything to communicate with each other. This can release the pressures of the patients and their families, as well as make them closer and less lonely.
