Globetoddler

Globetoddler is a new project that focuses on remote awareness and shared experiences from children's point of view. The project aims to develop a technology and software solution that makes it easier, as well as more fun and rewarding, for young children (3-6 years) to interact with their remote, traveling parents. Newly conducted interviews indicate a need for a system with very different interfaces and interaction styles on the the two sides: on the parent's side the system consists of a fairly simple mobile application, whereas the child's side consists of a combination of a physically interactive toy interface and a guiding virtual avatar.
