The connected GiftBoxes enable people to give meaningful gifts to each other, across long distances, at the touch of a finger.

 

While they are together, they can fill their counterparts box with an array of gifts and then lock them away. When they are separated, gift messages can be sent from one box to the other. The availability of the gift is displayed via a breathing blue LED. Upon seeing the blue LED, the user can acknowledge his or her presence and the compartment will be opened automatically.
