Hyper-Coupling

Those who are in relationships find new and extreme ways to connect

Implications - The desire to connect with another human being on a deep, intimate level is a part of human nature. This means involving one's partner in as many facets of life as possible, especially in a society as fast-paced as this. To assist in creating this connection, companies are releasing products made to literally connect two people in the most unexpected ways. This creates a comforting sense of belonging in the chaotic, individualist information age.
