Context-aware design approaches encourage understanding human intention by simple sensors and promote human-to-human communication .<br />用簡單的感測器使人溝通<br />
  4. 4. Add more emotional channels to the traditional communication.<br />增加新的情感溝通方式<br />
  5. 5. 1.For Lovers <br />The wife sees her cup glowing which represents her husband is drinking.<br />不同空間也能同時做同一件事<br />2.With Other Communication Channels<br />Julie suggests to Ann to have a coffee break by shaking her cup.<br />約定進入相同的情境與話題氛圍<br />

  8. 8. 4.The paired Lover’s Cups are connected by wireless technology .<br /> short distance => Radio-Frequency (RF) <br />long distance => RF => Computer by Internet => RF<br />連接<br />5.If a person shakes Cup, the other cup will vibrate to generate the remote hand-shaking feeling to the other person. <br /> 握手行為<br />
  9. 9. 1.The hardware of Lover’s Cup consists of a double-sided acrylic cup .<br />壓克力組成<br />2.Capacitive sensing techniques were used to detect the liquid level and drinking action without contacting the liquid, so sensors could be invisible. <br /> 電容傳感器 – 水位與喝水<br />3.One sensor transmitting the reference signal was installed on the surface of the cup to be touched by a user’s hand when the cup was held by a user. <br /> 其中一個傳感器安置在手握位置<br />
  10. 10. 4.LEDs are used to show the status of the other cup. <br /> LED被用來顯示別的杯子狀態<br />5.Piezo sensors and micro motors made more active communication possible. <br />壓電感測器與微型馬達應用<br />6.Another possible interaction is toasting. <br />敬酒互動<br />
