I had so much playing this little project! Since millions of people nowadays have obesity, the burden of excess weight is much more than meets the eye. This chronic, debilitating condition leaves people prone to many serious illnesses, including heart disease. So how to save the world? Oh I mean, to help people lose weight using technologies?
Here comes Nutrition Wristband!
What is this?
The Nutrition Wristband is a wearable device designed for building healthy eating habits, and the target groups are mainly focusing on people with excess weight, and the wristband will help users by coming up with a smart grocery list, adjusting grocery price and interacting with reminders to control the diet to get users' weight-loss and keep fit.
And the inspiration is simply from the scale of the marketplace.
How does it work?
- Fill out your information(such as height, weight, allergic, etc though App on your phone, then connected with the wristband.
- Based on the previous data collection, a list of food has been recommended, along with a budget that has been decided. Now easily put on the wristband and get groceries.
- 3. Please note there will be no price tag for any kind of food in the supermarket, you need to get close to the food you want so the "price" will be sensed and shown on your wristband. If the food is on the recommendation list, you will get the market price; if you picked food out of the list, you will get 10 times its market price. For an example, normally you pay 2 bucks for a can of coke since it checked out by the price on your wristband, so now its turn to 40. Will, you still considering buying it? Maybe not.
what the interaction modes are?
- Emotion: The wristband will interact with a happy face when you picked food that is on the list, and show a sad face when you pick something else.
- Colour: Sometimes the face icons can be easily confused at a glance, but strong colors are easily distinguishable. For a happy face, it will be painted with bright yellow and the sad face will be applied with a significant red.
- Motion: The wristband will also interact with two kinds of vibration. When you trying to purchase inappropriate food, you get a light vibration for 3 seconds. However, when the total price of your shopping cart exceeds the budget, you will get a strong non-stop vibration until you put things back or press "stop" manually.
So umm you can eat healthily and save time and money on fast food I hope~
