Conch emotional bond / Emotional transmission device

Conch emotional bond
Conch emotional bond

The product is inspired by a conch, and we hope to use it to convey or express the tender feeling between the elderly and their children. The product awakens and guides emotional communication between parents and children through shaking, lighting and sound.
When one party touches it or talks to it, the conch will shine a soft light and make the sound of waves. The other conch will also wiggle slightly to remind the other party. This design can be used not only between parents and children but also as an emotional bond in any long-distance relationship.
