Detailed Description

-

The objective of this project is to find a way to process information in more personal experience, considering the era of the Internet and the Internet of Things (IoT) and the connection between the digital and real-world through motivational messages. It is focused on an object that will motivate people with their daily tasks, re-framing their state of mind on a shareable self-intrinsic motivation by related people and new relationships. The project relies in the relation between objects and cued memories — this can be an elucidating trade-off for encountering and re-evaluating personal disposition towards an environment, objects, and their related memories. The project consists of an object that aims to improve adherence by giving reminders and helping people or patients to keep track of their mental state and most important daily motivations, by exchanging messages between a restrictive group of people.
