Connecting people through light to relieve loneliness
How might we make people who are suffering form loneliness to feel more connected to others?
Customer / Problem
Parents and teenagers wanting to bridge the distances between two people.
Smart connected lamps that are paired, when one person touches theirs it sends a signal to the other one resulting in light appearing. Showing that the other person is thinking of them and they are not alone. Using this technology does not require screen time allowing youth to connect without using a phone.
