Encouraging Face to Face Social Interaction: These days, mobile devices are everywhere. Everyone has at least one and people are on them all the time, sometimes when they shouldn’t be, like when they’re out with friends. It’s Natasha’s goal to get people off of them. Most people agree that mobile technology hurts socialising overall but there are aspects that can make a positive contribution to socialising. Natasha is a social hub that takes these positive aspects (such as sharing media and looking up information), enhances them and makes them more appropriate for a social environment. She accomplishes this through her LED display for displaying information and expressions, a microphone for voice recognition commands, a projector for streaming mobile device screens, a laser projector for games and a 360-degree speaker for audio and music. Users connect their devices to her and are then able to use their functions to benefit the social environment instead of harm it.
