The Airloom sits on the family dinner table to capture memories and conversation through photo and audio recordings. It stores all the data internally and the pictures and stories can be revisited through a projection on the table. This device concept is designed to infuse tradition, context, and storytelling into a meaningful, digital artifact and the Airloom will live through family generations as an artifact from the past.

    Thanks for the great feedback. Actually we saw you at last years Interaction Design Conference and where inspired by your talk about “The 40 year old tweet”. Really great to hear from you!
