This emotive interactive device is designed to enable two individuals to “sense” the presence of each other even though they may be physically apart. While the internet provides a vast array of text messaging and video calling options, Intimatu offers a unique, spontaneous and subtle mode of passive communication exclusive between two individuals. This distinctive application of technology for Intimatu is a starting point for new possibilities in communication as well as opens new markets and research opportunities in human interaction and response.
