The Bonded Brothers

See the Instructable!

My project is a pair of brothers that can sense and reciprocate each other’s feelings, no matter how far they are apart.

If one of the brothers is touched, he expresses his feelings in the form of a light or a vibrate. Because the bond between siblings is so strong, however, those feelings get reci-procated on the other doll. In this way, whatever you do to one doll is felt by the other.

These little guys can be shared between any pair of people who share a bond like the brothers do, that way, no matter how near or far, you can always let them know you’re still bonded.
