‘roly poly’, designed by the design incubation centre at the national university of singapore, are a pair of egg-like objects
that mirror each other’s movements, even when physically separated. two people thus can sense each other’s presence
despite distances across the world: a tap of one half will create a simultaneous reaction in the other.
if i’m ever in a long-distance relationship, i want them.
Just imagine…You’re in your room, at night, feeling lonely and missing your far away partner. You’re thinking about them and wondering if they’re thinking about you. And then your egg suddenly leans and you feel a bit ridiculous, feeling so happy from a wobbling egg, but you still smile brightly at the knowledge that halfway around the world they are thinking of you and watching their’s sway too.
