NEXT / Social Connections


Preventing health effects and Medicare costs from social isolation becomes an important issue. Rather than solving family structure and demographics changes, there is an opportunity for designing a device used to support people may help to reduce social isolation. Therefore, NEXT is a portable device that allows people to share their depression, loneliness, and joy with the ones they love by giving different pressure on the device. On the other side, the receivers can provide emotional supports and build conversations with them when they receive notifications and track their weekly emotional statistics on the application.
