Loneliness is a threat for the ageing population. Those experiencing loneliness experience higher health risks such as heart disease, cognitive decline and depression. Social isolation can be overcome by initiating conversations and reaching out to others, and fostering connections with like-minded people around you.  This prosthetic is programmed with the wearers' interests. When approaching someone with a shared interest, it starts to flicker to draw attention to the wearer and attract and encourage conversation. It is inspired by peacock feathers, impressive displays conveying the wish to communicate and connect. Since it is placed on the top of the head, it serves the additional aesthetic purpose in that the wearer doesn't have to worry about losing hair or a receding hairline.  Materials: Glass fiber/LED's/Custom made electronics Door: Isaac Monté
