The “Ampers’hand” is a night light for small groups of people to stay together in a crowd. As public gatherings and events have had a comeback, getting lost in crowds has also had a larger comeback. Initially thought out as an additional assistive hand for mums with more than two children; I soon realized, music festival go-ers, friend groups, tourists etc could get an extra hand.
I wanted to add a third dimension to an ‘alphabet’ or a sign or a universal symbol for this project. The ‘&’ happened to spark my thought further adding to the ‘pun’
Does it light up?
Yes, I would like to light it up with a touch sensor so that it blinks every time someone touches the Ampers’hand.
Cotton or Linen
Hard padding – Foamboard or Cardboard
This is a scaled-down prototype, that I later realized couldn’t be turned inside out 🙁
