Ayatori plugs into smartphone, lets you communicate through light
Light has been a medium of communication since ages. With an idea to bring the same mode of communication to the smartphone crazy world, Japanese firm Vinclu has launched an Indiegogo campaign for AYATORI – light communication appcessory (combination of words app and accessory). Ayatori is a smartphone accessory, which uses romantic light and internet to allow user to communicate their feeling to each other without words.
The Ayatori plugs into the smartphone via earphone jack, and opens for the user a whole new world of communication with light courtesy its free app. Vinclu will develop three Ayatori apps – Ayatori Match, Ayatori Live and Ayatori Pair. Currently the apps are being developed for iOS, but it will be available for Android and Windows too.
Using the Match app, Ayatori lights up when you pass someone with same interests as yours. Say, you’re in a party with no companion; the Ayatori can help you locate someone with interest similar to yours – it could be the first step to an interaction. Live event app extends capability of the smartphone making it a device you can play with in events. Connecting the Ayatori enabled smartphone with a controller managed by an artist, you can show your phone to creating lighting entertainment. Finally with Ayatori Pair app, users can send non-verbal messages to each other, across distances, using romantic lights.
