Lightbound, Communication System

Lightbound is a communication system designed to enable two loving individuals feel present in each other’s lives despite physical distance.

The prototype consists of a pair of networked objects that mediate ambient light as a subtle, non-verbal language of mutual awareness. Individuals can communicate through touch which is translated into a continuous pulsating light representing his or her real-time heartbeat. Light bound attempts to harness the poetic dimension of technology by facilitating individual connections with people who make us happy.
