SkypeFrame is a Skype enabled picture frame. When the person in the picture is available on Skype the picture frame lights up. This enables the owner of the picture frame to easily see if their loved one is available to talk.
The frame has a knock gesture included so the owner can tap the frame 3 times (triple tap) to send an SMS invitation to the other person to a Skype call. The gesture is ‘urgency’ sensitive – the harder the user taps, the more assertive the text message. This allows the receiver of the text to understand the urgency of the Skype call request.
