I started to build a connection platform for my retired father. Retirement ages are getting younger and these people feel left out by developing technology and don't know what to do in their spare time. For these people, we wanted to create products and platforms that make it easy to make friends and find common companies in a space with the same memories. I made a product using TV and remote control, which are the most used products. The 1225 slides into the remote control and inserts the metaverse connection case, which reacts to the magnetic sensor and connects to the metaverse platform, Gedertown. We wanted to increase usability by putting intuition and ease of use first. The meaning of 1225 is a beeper code called "Come here" in the era of Korean beeper. These codes bring back their memories and give them a sense of belonging.
