Quarantining / social distancing protocols require people to stay at home for longer periods of time than they might be used to. This extended isolation can prove taxing on an individual's emotional and mental well-being. While communication with others is possible via call, text, or video conference, it lacks the physical element present in face-to-face contact.
What it does
HelloPal connects to a web server that will allow a user to initiate different gesture controls - a wave, a high five, etc. This is sent to the designated "pal," creating a more physical, friendly social gesture.
Through a simple wave, or even a high five ... HelloPal connects you and your peers through physical interactions in this ever-growing virtual world
