NAVI explores the future of Samsung Galaxy accessories by fore-sighting next generations of smart technologies. We see it as a companion with smart technology. 

Improvements in technologies have enhanced capabilities of smartphones to satisfy users needs from day to day. But we felt there was something cold about our most used devices relative to our lives. It did not feel natural. We saw this, as opportunity to explore how smartphones can interact with users like our pets being our favourite companion.

Living with someone you trust and love is a blessing. Love in a relationship is a miracle. Trust worthy companion is your family.  NAVI is about bringing these affections in our lives into our devices.

Consequently, we researched pets that demonstrate unique individual traits, which instigate general, human affection. Eventually we funnelled it down to the Butterfly.

A butterfly exemplifies how nature is unique, mysterious and elegant. The proportions from head to toe, wide spread of wings with one of a kind pattern, and settle breathing movements in their gentle wings.

Our main natural communication mediums are a combination of body language and vocal signals. NAVI becomes a collapsible accessory shaped as an abstract butterfly. The value lies in adding a life-like form to an otherwise inanimate device that we use as a communicative tool.

NAVI becomes twitchy when users receive a message or notification. Generates visual stimulus when receiving call as well as voices that can compliment or completely contradicts its natural form for cynical outcome and reactions. 

NAVI synchronizes with Samsung smartphones to allow access of smart features while it companies the user. The butterfly feature allows the wings to be the screen, eyes to be 360-degree camera, and legs to be the stand.

NAVI will provide users with unique new experience with everlasting companionship.
