MOBILE APP PROTOTYPE:
The prototype replicates the experience of turning your phone on and unlocking it so you can see the animation increment, as well as providing access to explore the full mobile app.
You can view the mobile prototype on your iPhone by clicking: Engauge mobile prototype
Viewing on mobile is ideal, however if you choose to view on the web, please size your browser window to approximate mobile device width.
INTERACTIVE PHONE COVER:
To further emphasize how much you’ve used your smartphone, the interactive phone cover also visualizes your use count on the side of it. The phone cover lights up when the smartphone is picked up so you are made aware of your current use count before you even turn on your smartphone. The lights will not remain on all the time, just for brief 10 second intervals when activity is sensed. Between the phone cover and the lockscreen animation, the Engauge system intervenes twice before the user is fully on their smartphone with the aim to reduce that unintentional or habit-driven use.
