As technology make sensors smaller thus more portable, everything about our lives can be tracked, quantified, and recorded, from blood pressure to brain waves. But the question is: what do they mean to us?
We designed Journey Jacket -.
Journey Jacket starts monitoring stress through HRV(Heart rate variability) monitor which will be activated after user puts hand in front pocket, and then sends vibration responds which simulates a rubbing action on the back to guide passenger breathe in a pattern - taking passenger back to relaxed state.
Interviews + Ideation + Secondary Research + Ideation
From opportunity exploration to final concept, we had several rounds of research, ideation, discussion, and iteration. The below illustration showcases how our team came up with the core elements of our design, in a much cleaner way.
We built a simple prototype (handcrafted blanket with vibration motor) mainly aimed to test whether user understands pockets as way to activate and whether they will breathe along with the vibration motor.
