BabyOrb

Johan Andersson, Fredrik Påhlsson, Ida Hammer Ingerslev, 2016 Tangible & Embodied Interaction

Developed as part of an exploration into embodied interactions/somaesthetics. The BabyOrb was meant to emotionally connect parents to be, focusing on family constellations where the parents don’t live together. A birthmother and a couple would for example both have an orb that, when touched, communicate with the other orb, showing interest and comfort for the parent at the other end.
