Squeezing someone’s hand conveys comfort and support in those situations where you can’t talk. These bracelets use memory metal to replicate this gesture, conveying it over distance.

novel and funny. odd at the same time touching. thumbs up!

“he feels her answering squeeze, and is comforted to know they’ve thought of each other…”

Tracy says:

A sweet and simple idea. Well done.

Andy says:

Very creative

This is a pretty neat concept! Did you ever pursue it or do you know if it was done by someone else?

It reminds me of user experience work regarding connectedness by Marc Hassenzahl, for example: http://hassenzahl.wordpress.com/2010/09/23/linked-what-the-hell-are-these-boys-doing/
