WHY DO I WANT TO MAKE IT?
Tubeman always moves in a weird yet entertaining way. However, it shares some strong and magical happiness through its movements.
Happiness can be subtle and simple. I have noticed there are many simple things in life that easily makes people happy. Like a smile from a stranger on the street, a weird shape cloud in the sky, as well as the funny movement of a tubeman.
Technologies have made it simple for us to share moments in our lives with others much easier. Living in a social media era, it is natural for us to capture moments in our lives and share them. By sharing a photo of us in a certain time and space, we also share our emotions and connections to that physical space to people in another place.
Therefore I want to create an experience in which people can share a form of simple happiness easily to their families and friends through technologies. This idea leads me to create “Tubeman is happy!”.
By encouraging the users to imitate the tubeman and enabling them to create and share gifs of themselves moving, “Tubeman is happy!”is trying to make people happy while allowing them to share that happiness to others.
