Mutsugoto is a prototype communication device intended for a bedroom environment. Mutsugto allows distant partners to communicate through the language of touch as expressed in light on the canvas of the human body.
A custom projection system allows the two users to draw on each other's bodies whilst they lie in bed. Drawings are transmitted live between their two locations, enabling a different kind of communication that leverages the emotional quality of physical gesture.
