Information technology, especially the emerging online social network, makes our virtual selves disconnected from real selves. We show different images, meet different friends and talk about different things online versus in the real life. Status pin makes a fun intersection between the two worlds. By showing your current online status to people around you, it enables a delightful way for self-expression and creates fresh topics for face-to face communication. Comprised of a tiny screen and a built-in receiver, the design is simple and affordable.
