Liu Haibin, 30, is an engineer who works in Xiamen City, China. His work takes him away from his family, which lives 730 miles away in Tengzhuo City. He dearly misses his 8-month old son in particular. So Liu built two matching seesaws equipped with motion sensors, cameras, and display screens. With them, Liu and his son and seesaw together in real time. The Daily Mail reports:
'I want to leave some good childhood memories for my boy.
'Hopefully he will remember when he grows up that his father has tried to make him happy.'
Speaking of his inspiration for the project, Liu added: 'Every time I think about my childhood, I remember my father coming home early to play with me on the seesaw.
'This memory always gives me strength, so I want to give my son memories that fill him with love.'
