I’m working on a math heavy pattern right now, and my brain just needed a diversion. So I took a break last night a designed this Tamagotchi ON cozy. Tamagotchis are a cool little diversion themselves. It’s a revival of the 90’s electronic pet. You start with a digital egg and it hatches and grows through different stages of life. But only if you feed it, clean it, and play with it…Every. Single. Day. Or it dies.
It’s fun to play when I’m supposed to be cleaning house or feeding my real kid. Why go through all that when you can do it digitally in a game? The device is a little egg shaped game, and the originals had a keychain attached so you could carry it with you where ever you go. The newest version lacks the keychain, so I needed a cozy that would protect it, make it a little shock resistant, and have a convenience loop to carry it. So here is a quick diversion for you to make for your or your kid’s Tamagotchi.
