Talk to the Hand

Talk to the Hand is a satirical critique on social networking and its potential futures. As these online networks become more advanced, they continue to gain significance within the very social structure which it is reflecting. Syncing with individual’s Facebook pages and personal websites, these barcode watches allow individuals to have their digital social or professional counterparts become a physical part of their entity. While the wristwatch remains removable, the project probes to question a potential near future in which the two entities become inseparable through the acceptance of biological computational implants such as TCR (tooth chip radio) technologies already under research and development.
