ConnectBeat

Nadine

For Philips I made, ConnectBeat, a concept for connecting with your brother/sister at a long distance.

ConnectBeat receives the heart beat of the other. With a matching sensor, the heart rate will be measured. This sensor can be placed anywhere you want to send your heart beat (for example on a chair). It goes up and down on the heart rate of the other. Therefore, you can react to it. By laying your hand on it, you’re letting the other know your thinking about them in the situation. Then the other’s ConnectBeat lights up in a colour which helps them with the emotion they’re feeling. Positive emotions will be strengthen by the light color, negative will be softened. This is a more valuable way to connect with someone at a long distance.
