This project is solving the Friends In High Places challenge. Description
We have started our work by analyzing how Samantha was living in space and how we were going to improve social interactions with the terrestrial world. For this we have devised a clever T-shirt that would link her to her followers without having to connect to a computer.
We designed this shirt like a second skin that would transform virtual information in real sensations. We used some existing interactions in existing social networks to adapt them to the tee-shirt and various emotions.
We have imagined that the shirt would be connected to a new social network ("Touch The Space") -for astronauts into space only-. Each followers could give some attention and send heat and hugs to the astronaut of their choice.
