As passive data sensing become widely accepted for wellness and mental health purpose, many wearable technology products gain rapid market shares. Recently the enthusiasm of wearable technology is clearly booming as we see Apple and Google’s Fitbit deals stay at the top of finance media.

In the near future, after wearable technology products become a daily norm just like our smartphone today, the functionality and user experience desire might shift from just getting passive data to various responsive interfaces. The shift of the functionality could be predicable from the market standpoint: future desires of wearable technology would be interpersonal rather than for an individual, and could play a role in transforming communication norms and social activities.

The Holo Flower is a real-time data visualization interface displayed in holography on digital devices. The input data of the flower is based on biometric data and EEG signals from wearable devices. The concept behind the Holo Flower is to unrolling and visualizing vulnerable details in daily communication, both interpersonal and intrapersonal.

Every second of the generated blooming flower is unique as it is based on various personal data that reveals brain events like dreaming, focusing, excitement...etc

The long days of collecting and sharing these generated flowers are similar to long days of planting or taking care of your pets, the social richness plated onto this visualization could potentially help with emotion-regulation, wellness self-checking, embracing sexual activities.  The experience of growing these holo flowers may vary based on the individual user.

IDA 2: Lighting Bug

ARC: 2070 Social Destruction Reformation

TERRAIN: Journalism

OBJECT: Insect

MOOD: Frustration

In 2070 XXX, the practice of writing done daily journals, as well as writing long letters to significant other, friend or co-workers is almost come to extinct. The main reason is because the development of AI generated language contexts become the majority method to communicate complex and long narratives or stories. The auto-generated mailing system will write longer documentations for people based on imputed main idea, context data and mood tone.

The Journal Prep Bug uses voice recognition to generate strong visual temper in user’s bedroom. When the user has fluent and continuous oral presentation, the room vibes would be pleasant and refreshing, otherwise there will be traces of fraud patterns on the wall everywhere. This mobile wall device is advocated to individuals who wants to challenge himself for at-home narrative practice. The Bug will help individuals to become more self-aware of the quality of every presentation try-out with real-time immersive data visualization.
