A: CREATE A MODULAR AND CUSTOMIZABLE SENSOR PLATFORM SO USERS CAN CONNECT WITH THEIR BRACELET.

Q: HOW DO WE CREATE A SENSOR PLATFORM TO HELP PEOPLE WITH HEALTH CONCERNS WANT TO WEAR SENSORS?

Modular Sensor Platform

I applied my trend awareness to a 3-week open project, where I chose to focus on sensors.

THE FUTURE OF HEALTH SENSORS

THE FUTURE OF HEALTH SENSORS

Sensors no longer just check your heart rate; hundreds are coming out to address health issues that maybe someone you know has, like Alzheimer's, seizures, diabetes.

WHAT PEOPLE WANT

WHAT PEOPLE WANT

But even though these sensors could save lives, they’re being put into products that people don't really want to wear. So when I looked at what people DO want in their biotech,

I found they wanted something more fashionable, that let them hide that they had a health problem,

That gave the ability to choose their health sensor and then several others that maybe sensed their emotions and changed their music for them,

MULTIPLE SENSOR PLATFORM

MULTIPLE SENSOR PLATFORM

So I developed a platform for sensors that let users insert multiple sensors, a platform which now has a provisional utility patent, and used flexible circuit boards, FOLED screens, etc.

I then began developing ways to change out covers and clasps, to match different users' emotional needs,

So with this concept, for example, a diabetic user could insert their health sensor, insert other sensors,

And customize it to help them want to wear the sensors that could save their lives, because they connect with it because they made it theirs.
