Finger monster / toy

Many older adults are at risk of developing neurological and mental health disorders, especially dementia and depression. So it's important to keep their brain healthy. There is an opportunity to solve this problem in the interaction between the elderly and grandchildren. Therefore, we designed a game called Finger Monster. Through it, the elderly can have fun and interact with their grandchildren without obstacles, and get spiritual inspiration. At the same time, during the game, the elderly need to think about strategies and finely manipulate their fingers, which can help them keep their brains alive.
