Ghost in the house

Ghost in the House is a system of interactive furniture that allows you to communicate with your belongings and feel less alone.

Monitoring behavior, it expresses affection, concern, and interest, connecting emotionally and meddling in users’ lives; worrying as loving parent would. When a user’s behaviour upsets the system, they can improve its mood simply by offering affection, such as hugging a pillow or offering a kind word.
