Abstract or Introduction
People share spaces such as cafes, airports, libraries, and classrooms for hours everyday. Often times, these people sitting right next to each other never even think to interact. They almost always have shared interests, some common ground on which they could interact. The Social Seat helps people converse and connect in a easy, interactive, and playful way using a physical chair that indicates one's willingness to talk, and common topics. This paper will discuss how the concept came to fruition and how we researched the market to find consumer preferences and needs.
