Children and young people with long-term illnesses suffer doubly by often being forced into isolation for extended periods. As research continues to show the negative effects isolation has on health, physical and mental wellbeing, Norwegian start-up No Isolation decided to create a hardy, friendly, small avatar designed to be carried around by schoolchildren to help their absent classmates participate in everyday activities. The avatar is controlled by an app, so even patients requiring bed rest can take part. Lights on top of the avatar’s head indicate when the person at home wishes to speak or remain in listening mode.
