We Cig

Maintaining Interactions Over Distance

Brian Yang, Sara Johonson, Miles Peyton, & Akiva Krauthamer (2014), Physical Computing, Human Interactions

 

While smoking is a social activity between two people physically together, we aim to make smoking connect long distance friends. Our we-cigs come in connected pairs. When a person inhales, their friend’s cigarette tip glows, and dims as a the person exhales. We aim to communicate the intimacy of a friend’s breathe – a life sustaining act – while smoking – a life killing act. The e-cigarettes connect two people through their action and vices.
