Toggle Button: Emoji Mood Status Update Application
March 16, 2019
Toggle Button is a 3” round pinback button with a full-color digital display. Users pair it with an iPhone and use the app to pick one emoji to display on the button. Whenever one's mood changes they can change their emoji simply by entering it in the app’s status box.
Users can put the button anywhere they like, it has a regular pinback pin for fabric and a replaceable magnet back for metal. Plug it in via USB and take it anywhere once it’s charged.
Friends can share the current emoji they have displayed on their pin online so they can project their mood in real time. It’s a conversation starter or can signal to keep some distance.
It’s like Twitter only with just one graphic, no words. In the future, the user may choose to share their status above their virtual avatar or physical self with those who have AR/VR access. Perhaps eventually add sound bites and animation, such as Apple Animoji support.
