When you watch the Olimpic Games your heart beats for your team. We wanted to show that it is physically possible to feel these heartbeats, the symbols of support, even from a distance of 1500 kilometers. 

We manufactured digital gadgets that are able to turn people's virtual support into tangible sensation. The gadgets traveled to London with the National Team and every time someone sent a message from our website the gadgets pulsated and emitted a colorful light, receiving the messages as a heartbeat, incarnated as an encouraging experience. 

If you'd like your name to appear in our report on open innovation, please include it below as you'd like it to appear.
