Mänskligare prylar pratar. En kommunikationsplattform för äldre
Safety, its a word not commonly associated with elderly people living alone. There is however a device that is supposed to bring safety, and enable elderly people to continue living in their present household - an emergency dialer. However these devices does not serve their own purpose in terms of design. The purpose of this study is to create an emergency dailer that everybody would want to put on their wrist or bedside table. The market for these devices have looked the same for the last twentyfive years, despite of society´s advancements in both design and technology. By incorporating these 25 years of trust, together with present technology, I have designed a concept that is supposed to mark the beginning of a new era within home security. I have added functions that invites the user to frequently use the product in more than one way. Together with a more sensitive design it contributes to a healthier relationship between the user and the product.
