The elderly often can’t cope with today’s communication technologies, while young people don’t like to call them   very often. Hence it is hard for grandparents to keep up with what’s going on in their family.


The Familio Home connects both generations using the means of communication both sides are used to: Young   people can send images to the familio home using telegram. The pictures then show up in the digital picture frame and grand parents can respond to them using the phone, which send’s a voice message back to telegram

Solution: an audio inspection device that analyzes the sound of the “click” to detect (in)correct cable connections.
