Blink: A Language of Love through Light is an innovative physical-to-digital experience that keeps families with sick children connected during medical treatment. This custom-built set of devices gives families an unspoken language of love during moments of separation and anxiety. When a shake or tap is detected, it's sent to the cloud through a 3G antenna. The message is then routed to the corresponding Blink where a set of six LEDs flashes the message as a sequence of colored lights. Families remain close when they can’t physically be together. Designers collaborated with a children’s hospital to ensure that all materials and components would pass hospital regulations and be safe for children.
