DESIGN INTERVENTION | RELATIONSHIP FIRST AID KIT

Clink USE CASE

Towards the end of a long meeting, Jacqui and Charles start butting heads. They are really not seeing eye-to-eye, and it’s making their other team members uncomfortable. Drake, the meeting manager, ultimately brings out the Relationship First Aid Kit and hands two of the Clinks to Jacqui. “You two need to sit down and have a beer together,” he says. Jacqui grumbles, but once meeting ends, she and Charles go to the kitchen area of their office. After all, having an afternoon beer is far from a punishment. “Options are limited,” Charles says, looking into the fridge. “Blue Moon or Southern Tier?” Jacqui requests the Southern Tier IPA. Charles takes one, too. Jacqui wraps one Clink around each beer bottle, adjusting them like a watch band, then moves the bottles close together until the magnets in the bands snap to each other. Now the bottles are held together, unless Jacqui and Charles pull them apart simultaneously. Lifting just one bottle tended to cause the other to tip over, as Charles had learned the hard way.
