In a speculative future scenario, we assume that interpersonal face-to-face communication will become increasingly rare. People mainly communicate with each other digitally. For this, they do not always have to see the other person completely, because digital tools are able to capture facial expressions and thus the emotions of the other person. 'memic is a wearable digital tool for the transmission of facial expressions and voice.
In the process of 'memic we experimented with different shapes to find out which one fits best on as many heads as possible, because the shape of the head is more individual than the fingerprint. The construction is made of flexible spring steel, which guarantees adaptability at the back of the head and guarantees good stability on different heads.
