Every new technology or device, especially the ones based on AI, can be strange and scary. It takes time until we get to know it and become comfortable using it. Igigi’s design, in both body and virtual character, was conceived to overcome that gap very quickly and with pleasure. Igigi’s form is tender, gentle, soft, and smooth.On the other hand, it has a character. Flowing soft lines and surfaces with boldcolor contrast, organic protrusion, and skin-a-like finish reveal an amiable and dynamic personality.
We made this design for PygmyTITAN
