InTouch is designed to encourage people to stay in touch with their loved ones. It’s a product that consists out of 5 hand-held objects and a charging dock. Each object represents a close contact that you wish to stay in touch with regularly. By lifting one of them off the dock, an automatic video call is started on your computer or other connected device, using RFID technique. To end a call, simply put the object back onto the dock, where it will also recharge.
Inside every object there’s a light source that will indicate how long its been since you and your contact last spoke. The longer it’s been, the more intense the colour will be.
InTouch should be seen as a positive feedback, a reminder of the people closest to you.
