Prototype for Nudge – an ambient device that uses communication data to make people aware of their relationship with close friends and family. The vision for Nudge came about because of the declines in job security and labour-market restructuring, which have increased pressure on the family and reduced location choices. As a result families often become fragmented and older members of the family can become isolated. By disrupting the notion of the photo frame as a product, Nudge encourages people to start conversations with close relations.
The scenario in the video shows how the device changes based on the relationship between two friends.
