We consider the design of a ubiquitous system whose objective is to strengthen affective bonding and allow affective support, especially for distant relationships with the family and friends. It is based on wearable computers that evaluate emotions, transmit information to authorized persons, and enable interactions. Our most significant contribution is the provi sion of the design for a complete system usable in everyday life, based on emotional design and on multi-cultural feedback.
