Jive is a communication device especially designed to get elderly technophobes connected to their friends and family. How it work, Jive uses friend passes to link a physical persons ID with digital life. A user simply links a friend pass to there friend feed account. This will then seamlessly update all of this data onto betty. If the users want to find out more specific details about a person, they can just place that persons ‘friend pass’ onto the screen. The screen will automatically know who that person is, and upload specific updates about that person. No more mouse, just simply put the the avatar onto ‘betty’s’ display to operate Jive.
