    • A hug is a message of love;
    • A hug is a handshake from the heart;

This concept is not only true for lovers but every person on earth.

  • Design hypotheses:
    • Hug message is actually love message
    • Most common symbol of love : the Heart
    • Users will associate a heart shape device with their love one.

Design specification:

  • A Heart with 12 different sensing areas
  • Sensing areas is positioned according to different body parts' positions
  • Users can print/paste picture of their love one onto device
  • User can attach the device to their mobile phone since it small, nice and cute
