You know

In the age of smart touch, users and designers are looking for the best way that connect people, technology and products. “You know” provides a solution to this problem. Since each species has its own way of passing on a message, we can also give “You know” its own "language." When we deliver instructions to “You know” , it gives us feedback through vibrations and light changes. In China, parents always live with their children, and for physiological reasons,  there can be some inconvenience for parents and children when using the washing machine.
