dc.description.abstract This MA work concentrates on exploring the concept of emotional communication, through the design and prototyping of three communication "tools" for connecting friends and family. This concept was used as a guiding line for the design, and as means of illustration on how common objects and interests, along with subtle ways of communicating; can connect people to each other and even encourage their communication. The strategy used in each prototype is to implement some type of information design into a tangible object. As prototyping is considered a central activity in the development of the concepts, prototyping tools for designers are discussed and documented for the benefit of other interested. The MA work consist of three parts: The present document, in which each tool is described from its concept development, scenario envisioning and prototyping to the first user trials; along with the framework used for their development. The second part is a DVD that contains documentation of the interaction design and functioning of the prototypes in the form of video clips. The third part consists of the prototypes themselves to be exhibited in the MOA exhibition. en
