    • The Users Digitally excluded. Little or no access to computers. Family members dislocated. Illiterate.
    • Paper prototypes Several paper prototypes were made to test the interaction between such a ‘bracelet’ and a ‘prayer wheel’.
    • Paper prototypes Several paper prototypes were made to test the interaction between such a ‘bracelet’ and a ‘prayer wheel’.
    • Experience prototype Models were used to test and think through various modes of triggering inputs. Tilt, press, heat, vibration, tapping and other modes of input were tested.

    • Introducing the Bracelet
    • Introducing the Bracelet
    • Wheel Similar to a SIM card, the Wheel links the bracelet to a Hub or a source. Wheels have OLED surfaces with inscriptions similar to the ones on the parent bracelet. Bracelet Similar to a Mobile Phone, the Wheel links the bracelet to a Hub or a source. Wheels have OLED surfaces with inscriptions similar to the ones on the parent bracelet. Communication is possible with docked Wheels to any of the parent Bracelets Community wheel This is a family of all the parent wheels of bracelets . They stack up and act as message boards for the entire community that is docked to the base.
