In a speculative future scenario, we envision a world where face-to-face communication becomes increasingly rare, with people primarily interacting digitally. In this digital realm, complete visibility of the other person is not always necessary, as digital tools can capture facial expressions and convey emotions effectively. Enter 'memic—a wearable digital tool designed for the transmission of facial expressions and voice.
Throughout the 'memic project, we conducted experiments with various shapes to determine the most universally fitting design for different head shapes. Recognizing that the shape of the head is more individual than a fingerprint, we constructed memic using flexible spring steel. This material ensures adaptability at the back of the head, providing stability on various head shapes.
