Blackberry Empathy Concept Phone by Kiki Tang & Daniel Yoon

Daniel Yoon and Kiki Tang designed the BlackBerry‘s future, having always in the back of their minds that RIM is a single.
With the rise in social media and networking where Facebook made to 600 million users, Twitter scoring 10 billion tweets, introduction of so many Location based services and tie ups and many more.
The designers incorporate an interface that integrates human emotions with the concept of social networking.
The phone is used in conjunction with a biometrics ring that is worn by the user to collect “emotional data”.
It is of course touch based and all the user’s connections are shown graphically so you can see who is connected to whom. Each contact has an avatar that is encompassed by two colored rings. The inner colored ring shows the contact’s previous emotional state, and the outer ring represents the contact’s current emotional state. It is important to show the shift in emotions in order to see how an event has affected that contact.
Another important feature that we felt was important was the “Emotional Health Chart”. This chart would monitor the user’s emotional health through an indefinite period of time. One would be able to see how a certain event, or phone call/ message has affected the user. Obviously, if the chart shows someone is always upset, there would be a problem… If permitted, a user would be able to view other user’s charts as well.” as quoted by Designer Daniel Yoon.
