Tsumi makes sure that your attention is directed to your family, and that all family members aren't distracted by smartphones while eating dinner.

Rotation

When one of the family members uses his phone, Tsumi begins to spin. If left unattended, Tsumi will increase it's spin to draw more attention

Cooperation

In order to slow down Tsumi’s spin, all family members need to touch Tsumi’s surface with their fingers. The spin will gradually slow down as more fingers are placed on Tsumi
