Wu, Yalin

PEBBLE provides a new thinking: patina on the electronic products. The back cove will grow or reveal pattern aesthetically with wear. It breaks the traditional rule of seeking perfection on the mobile phone, instead, it inspires users to leave life traces on mobile phone and show their personality and life style. Most importantly it will contribute in giving owner the sentimental value and have an increasing relation to the mobile phone. The experience of attachment to a product is likely to last over time, resulting in product longevity. It might encourage owner to keep their phone longer, another point for sustainability of mobile phone.
