Compass Phone

The Compass Phone is about the issue of whether the mobile phone is a surveillance tool or a digital leash and it has focused on turning this issue into a source for creating an alternative means of communication which delivers a more poetic experience. The Compass Phone measures the distance between two people in real-time, and then converts it to the time it takes for them to meet each other by either transport or time unit.

Hayeon Yoo is an interaction designer who has interest in designing alternative means of communication that have more meaningful and aesthetic experiences. Her recent projects propose a new experience through tangible interface design that also raise ethical questions about current technology.
