Footsie

In a not too distant dystopic future, where everyone is glued to their devices at all waking hours, we have created this revolutionary system based on the classical interaction called footsie.  By wearing this wonderful pair of exciting socks both you and your loved one can engage in a purring, interactive foot massage that allows users to continue using their devices while relaxing and enjoying each others touch.  For extra excitement sleep in them so that you can wake your partner in the night with a purring vibration.

We chose vibration motors for our sound because we wanted the combination of the subtle inviting purring sound with the enhanced sensation of touch that is caused by the vibrations.
