STAY HYDRATED : HEALTHY HABIT + MUTUAL MOTIVATION
On average, humans should consume 8-10 glasses of water a day. Drinking right level of water will enable body gain many benefits from it. When people get busy or depressed, they can forget to do so. Dehydration leads to poor health. In the USA 75% of adults suffer chronic dehydration, drinking only 2.5 cups a day on average
The DoubleBubble bottle bases solve for these concerns by pairing water bottles and sharing drinking information. When one person is drinking or filling his/her water bottle, both bases react to it by creating a vortex,, a gurgling / pouring sound, and thus creating an audio-visual “drinking” effect. In this fun and thoughtful way, each person is reminded to drink the water he or she needs.
This was a collaborative group project done for MAS.834 Tangible Interfaces at MIT Media Lab.
My role in the team included interaction design / Arduino Pseudo-code, 3D modeling and product fabrication.
