What is Skyscraper

Skyscraper is a desktop lamp. It looks like a tall building with lots of windows. Behind each window is an LED bulb. Skyscraper is able to record gestures made by users and convert these gestures into electronic form, and then present them on the surface of the desk lamp. In addition, the user can also control the state of the light emitted by each window, such as the brightness, color, flicker frequency and chronological order of the light grid. After the user completes the innovation, Skyscraper can connect to another one via the network, and can project the produced pattern on the second device. Since the device is mainly based on gesture interaction, the innovative form has a strong appeal. Moreover, for users, the patterns of each work are unique and will not be repeated.

In essence, Skyscraper is an interesting table lamp. In addition to the basic functions (lighting), the desk lamp can customize and transmit information to help users express their emotions and convey love, thereby enhancing the relationship between people.

Target audience:

Any people with intimate relationships (parent-child / couple / close friends) can use Skyscraper as long as they want to express their emotions in a special and romantic way. In addition, People who are shy at accepting and expressing love can also use it to relieve anxiety, improve empathy, and increase their sensitivity to other people's emotional responses.
