This is a small project done in the Tangible Interaction master course this fall.
Long distance friendships often consist of sporadic and intermittent communication. The conversation is more than often centered around superficial, but interesting, details like the weather. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to have a closer, and more personal relationship with the situation your friends are experiencing?
Introducing Link, a shower accessory that connects directly to your friends location, and gives you the chance to experience the rain just like they are. Either to gloat or to give your sympathy, Link allows you to easily send them a Facebook message to notify them that you are having a shower with the exact amount of rain they are currently experiencing.
