Tactile care / interactive device

Tactile care
Tactile care

As COVID-19 is raging around the world, many people are unable to be in close contact with their loved ones. But it turns out that physical communication is an important avenue to relieve stress or reduce depression, so we design an innovative product —"Tactile care”.
By using our device, the user’s body contact actions will be presented through a tangible form of temperature sense, transforming the invisible care into a new sense of touch and vision. This interactive device can transmit the form of your body and temperature to the other device just like touching each other in the reality.
