An initial case-study proposed by the creative agency Booreiland requested a multidisciplinary design team to explore and develop a meta-product capable of supporting social behavior both online and offline. The result of the study proposed a wearable device for kids containing a small avatar with the ability to transform its appearance based upon the social ties of its owner. By exchanging body parts with peers, the avatar embodied real-life friendships through its appearance.
