the cup communicator is an imaginative digital reworking of the classic children’s toy of two tin cans attached with a long piece of string. the device is activated by tugging the cord and talking is started by squeezing the cup. the pair of cups work together and have the effect of a walkie-talkie. when one person talks, the other person’s cup plays their voice and vice versa. the device is designed to recall the children’s toy and its magic and playfulness. however wilson has explored its potential as a medium of interaction enhanced through contemporary digital technology.
