JIN YUE is an innovative communication system that serves as a bridge between the elderly and the young, addressing the gap that often separates these two generations. Inspired by the idea of two parallel lines that rarely intersect, JIN YUE reimagines the visual language of intergenerational connection. This project, a collaborative effort between scientists, engineers, and designers, is driven by a shared commitment to public welfare.



The JIN YUE system comprises two core components: the "Moonlight" Lamp and the accompanying mobile application (App). The Moonlight Lamp serves as an intelligent home device placed within the elderly's living environment. It empowers senior citizens to capture and record their current emotions and thoughts in real-time, enabling them to share messages and sentiments with the younger generation anytime in a easy-to-use way. Simultaneously, the App provides a platform for younger individuals to access this information, gain insights into the emotional state of their elderly loved ones, and track emotional patterns over time.



JIN YUE aims to inspire Gen Z to pay closer attention to the emotional needs of elderly individuals living in solitude. By facilitating a deeper understanding of the emotions of the elderly and providing strategies to navigate their emotional well-being, JIN YUE seeks to strengthen intergenerational bonds and enrich the lives of both seniors and their younger family members.
