Align your mental state
Orbo Loop and its campanion app provide a tangible stress tracking and meditation experience for users to maintain their mental wellbeing. The physical wearable and the app share a unified design language of "beads".
The documentation of this project is still ongoing.
While meditation apps have gained popularity in recent years, it is questionable whether a purely digital medium could provide an effective meditation experience for users. To validate this hypothesis and understand the shortcoming of existing mental health management products, a few users have been interviewed.
It was found that most meditation experiences have the following issues.
- Visual and audio guidance is not sufficient for keeping focus
- Difficult to quantify and qualify mental state
- Difficult to evaluate the effectiveness of the meditation
Based on the insights, the following problem statement is defined.
How might we utilize non-audiovisual medium to help city dwellers monitor their mental health and keep focus during meditation?
