Aura is a set of wearable devices to enable non-verbal communication between expectant parents. The project investigates possible aesthetic experiences as alternative applications to biometric monitoring. It aims to overcome the current situation in which the pregnant woman is seen as mainly and merely either as a patient or a “blessed body”. To achieve this, medical staff and potential users were interviewed. Based on the outcomes we designed a service embodied in two devices: a garment for the expectant mother and a bracelet for her partner. Fetal movements are translated into a light message for the mother-to-be and into a haptic one for her partner. The simultaneous connection of the partners enhances the emotional messages transmitted by the devices. The relationship is participatory, and the actions of both partners shape the conversation.
