Communications with someone special are not about content going back and forth. They are about feeling the presence of the person on the other side.
Feel Me is a sweet connection and a playful link with the person on the other side, opening a channel for a nonverbal and interactive connection.
Feel Me is a simple and new way to enrich digital communications.
Think of someone special in your life. When you are together with that person you can communicate in different ways: you can either talk or you can connect nonverbally –for instance by smiling, looking into each other’s eyes, holding hands, and so on. Yet, when you are apart communications tend to be much more explicit. You can certainly talk trough SMS and emails but how can you connect nonverbally?
Based on the finding for which communications with a special person are not about content going back and forth but rather about perceiving the presence of the other person on the other side, Feel Me opens a real-time interactive channel.
At a first glance Feel Me appears as a text messaging application. Yet, when the two parts are both looking at the conversation they are having, touches on the screen of one side are shown on the other side as small dots.
Touching the same spot triggers a small reaction, such as a vibration or a sound, acknowledging that both parts are *there* at the same time.
Feel Me does not aim at replacing physical interactions, but it rather aims at enriching the currently sterile digital communications.
Feel Me is fully working, it is not a concept.
Feel Me has been designed and implemented by Marco Triverio (@marcotriverio, portfolio.marcotriverio.com) as his final project at CIID (Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design, ciid.dk).
Feel Me is dedicated to Lorenza.
