LinkPin, Like Button, in collaboration with Jona Hoier

We introduce e-accessories using established web aesthetics to transfer online interactions into the physical world and vice versa. Inspired from visual impressions and interaction metaphors of web 2.0 applications we propose two scenarios to include relevant functions into the physical space and allow real world actions to directly interact with the personal online presence.

LinkPin refers to the inclusion of links to relevant web2.0 services included in many websites. Clicking them takes the user to personal profiles on individual platforms, giving an overview of the divers and distributed online presence and content.
