DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW INTERACTIVE DEVICE
MeYu is a product design and development collaboration between me and UX designer Brendan Dawes. Made By Magnetic North and Spank Design, it is a device that facilitates poetic communication between two people through wireless messaging technology. The system consists of a set of two paired devices that are carried by two people as they travel to separate destinations throughout the day. At any moment, one of the users can compose a “message” in the form of a series of lights and vibrations. When the message is composed and sent from one device, it is wirelessly received by the other. Through repeated use, a new, non-verbal language can be established between two people to reinforce intimate thoughts about their partnership.
