The Omni Present brings an even more personal touch to gift-giving, making the recipient and the sender feel much closer to each other. Ideal for integrating into parcels that must be sent by mail, this unexpected system of communication puts both parties in contact right at the moment of reveal.

Frolic Studio constructed a compact gadget from an Adafruit cellular GSM module called Arduino. This would be attached to the inside of a box and programmed to telephone the mobile phone of the giver. When the package is opened, the call is initiated and it's possible for a real-time "Happy birthday!" or "Merry Christmas!" to be exclaimed by the person behind the Omni Present.
