37.2℃ / interface design


Sometimes voices and text messages are not sufficient media for communication. What else do we need ? 37.2℃ is a concept mobile phone that aims to explore “body temperature” as a communication factor. When the phone rings, the caller’s handprints and his/her body temperature gradually appear on the display, and the phone changes its temperature accordingly. The surface of the phone, called “Second Skin”, is composed of peltier cells, pressure cells, temperature cells and solar LED cells. These sensors constantly measure outer information and reflect it on the display. 37.2℃ enables us to feel strong connection with someone you love.
