Melo

Melo is a real-time music-sharing device designed to increase connections between seniors and their loved ones.

The device functions similar to an FM radio but instead of public radio stations, users scroll through their social contacts and hear their music in real-time - joining them together in a musical experience. Likewise, if you choose to listen to your own music, friends and family can listen along, no matter where they are. The music is intended to fill the space and drown out the silence with pleasurable, selected sounds rather than television chatter. Melo was inspired by the alarming number of older people around the world who report regularly feeling lonely. It is a machine for bringing people together through music, across time and space.
