BOMBELL / Vibrating guest pager


BOMBELL offers a new solution for modern people who forget to spend their time without smartphones. How can we focus on each other for a few minutes? How can we get out of the data world for a few minutes? I looked at the time of ordering and waiting for food as an opportunity to solve this problem. While thinking about content that users can enjoy together, that can lead to conversation, and that can be fun, I came up with a game called "Pass the Bomb", which is a kind of board game. Using a form of guest pager that appears at cafes and restaurants in Korea, it makes people enjoy the game naturally, getting out of all information in online.
