Family dinners have decreased by 33 % over the last 20 years. It has become more difficult to disconnect from work and engage in family time, thereby creating a blur between work and personal life. Sharing your daily life with family members is a natural way to prevent feeling overwhelmed. MICO works as the modern bonfire around which families can gather and interact by telling and sharing their stories. Placed at the dinner table MICO uses ambient sparkling light to simulate a fire based on the level and intensity of the conversation. By keeping the dialogue alive MICO will keep the family fire burning.
