Computer mediated communication (CMC) systems, as with the great majority of interactive systems, rely on their users' ability to encode and decode messages in sight and sound. They are however notoriously problematic for implicit communication and fostering a sense of intimacy between couples. We describe the design concept and construction of a device intended to exploit existing behaviour and a haptic sensory channel: hand holding.
