Feel*Talk / Mobile phone application


Discipline: Communication

Discipline: Communication

Feel*Talk is a heartwarming mobile-phone application that identifies the atmosphere of calls and incoming messages. If a positive atmosphere was sensed during the conversation or in the mail’s content, a joyful animation of the little “Pic-Kun”-character is displayed on the phone’s screen. If worries were sensed, “Pic-Kun” takes care of the user’s feelings and tries to cheer him up.
Feel*Talk refines interaction by emphasizing positive feelings as well as smoothing unpleasant atmospheres. Besides enriching communication, it also enables the user to remember interactive situations by reviewing animations from calling list and message box later.
