Concept 1
Shut Up Device, A device to thrash out your thoughts

Objective: Share in full story for better understanding

We came up with ‘Shut Up’ as we felt that there is a lack of understanding between the grandparents and children. That usually happens when they do not really understand each other or when they have holdbacks to what they want to talk about. Thus, this device allows us to listen to both parties’ full stories, building a greater bond.

How does it work?

2 parties, each party have to shut up when the other party is talking. The talking party will then press a button that will make the other party ‘shut up’. Miscommunication happens when a negative judgment is made when the story is not fully shared. Hence, this device makes sure that there can be no interruption when the talking party is sharing.
