In the past, we expressed our emotions by face-to-face interaction, body movements and conversation. Smart devices replace these interactions in urban. We reduce face-to-face communication with people and we most of times focus on smart devices. At present, social software like Facebook's "Like", Twitter's "Like", these functions allow people to express their feelings or identity and posters receive these feedback to get a sense of belonging. These social emotions only on web cannot solve the real emotional connection. So we want to solve connection between people by wearable device. A personal item with technology for user to feel they are not alone. We let users express their feelings by changing led color. Ambient displays can allow a person to be aware of information. We design a location-based game for people feeling interesting to retrieve human connection. We design a necklace not only let people express their emotions but also connecting people each other.
