pop up is a hands-free concept that makes the user's conversation visible, so people can notice that the person is talking on the phone. In this way, the user feels more comfortable, because it doesn't look like speaking to no one. The device comes in the form of a brooch that can be suck on clothes. The pop-up hands-free has an aesthetic inspired by the pop-up message bubble, a visual message that is easy-recognizable by almost everyone.
What was the task for the work you show here?
Sometimes, people can’t notice that someone has a hands-free kit, and they think that the person is talking to no one. This is one of the reasons that people feel uncomfortable using a hands-free. It also leads people to believe that a person is addressing them when in fact they are on the phone via a handsfree device. I tried to design a handsfree device that will make the conversation visible, showing to others that the user is on the phone.
What was your unique idea?
Nowadays, sharing pictures on social media is very popular. I tried to translate this idea into the object. When the user receives a call from someone and they are attending the call via the headset, the pop up handsfree will display a picture of the person they are talking to and other people around the user would know that the user is in fact talking on the phone. The device allows users to import pictures of their contacts from the computer or social media.
