Sense X / emotional expression

Sense X
Sense X

“Sense X” is an app designed to enhance the expressive potential of nonverbal communication in mobile devices, to allow for richer emotional communication.
“Sense X” allows users to 'sense' messages through a combination of light, sound and vibration, and create tacit understanding with their contacts. Interaction is conducted more naturally by using all the embedded sensors in smartphones and an extended range of touch gestures. And present variable force into different typeface reflects emotions.
Many feelings are hard to express because of distance, but with this application it will be possible to observe more feeling with other users.
