Are we still able to balance our ratio and our emotions? Jens Dyvik believes that our ratio has wrongfully gained the upper hand. Dyvik has designed an interactive and cuddly tool, to bring people back in touch with their emotional lives. Ref will register the changes in your pulse and adapt its behaviour accordingly. If the host is stressed out, Ref will raise its head and tail. As soon as relaxation sets in, it will curl up its tail and lower its head, coaching its host in finding inner calm. The creature’s character will grow along with the wearer’s personal progress. Once you have mastered the technique you can pass it on to the next person.
