Robo makes t-shirts an agent of interaction between people. Putting an iPhone in a pocket/window on the chest, Robo users can show a fully-colored square motif that signals their position in the crowd like an electronic coat-of-arms. Passing through the city they will see it move and increase with the contribution of all the squares belonging to the people they met. It is another way of looking at relationships: a phone that projects people toward nearly strangers instead of keeping them far away from their context. It reflects and honours all the ephemeral connections between those who share the same city.
