iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2017

Because parents often have to spend long days at work, their children are sometimes sleeping deeply when they return home. As a result, parents do not have much time to communicate and interact with their children. Our design inspiration for the 'Touch Love' addresses this problem and aims to further mutual communication and interaction in family relationships. The design combines a smart bracelet with a wireless connection and is used in a group. The design transforms the distant love into zero distant touch. Missing each other is no longer a helpless emotion, it can be transformed into touchable family care.

The Touch Love concept brings another dimension to keeping in contact with loved ones. The 'absent parent' is one of many potential users who could profit from this concept.
