Jammify is motivated by providing a playful jamming exposure to busy, hard-working scholars at our institute. Jammify invites users to ‘play’ and engage in relaxed interactions, allowing them to take a ‘break’ from mentally demanding regular work. Also, we wanted to provide users with new technology-enabled experience to ‘fascinate’ their natural tech-inquiry. The current implementation of Jammify has a two-sided large-scale LED display and wearable forearm augmentation. Two individuals could draw on each side of the LED display as well as share emotive touch via a wearable forearm augmentation that enables the recreation of subtle touch sensations on each other's hands, creating a collective playful interaction.
