A necklace that captures emotional moments for you
Project is sponsored by HTC with the given topic of ‘The future of intimacy’. Team members include Bobin Gao, Sonia Lui and Ivy Siwei Wang.
Over the past years, a major change in relationship is how people. From early years of shooting with cameras and developing films, to nowadays taking selfies with cellphone and posting them on social media. Looking into the future, the ability to all the exciting moments and from the recording processing will play a huge role.
Vivre is a necklace that provides the ability to capture one’s emotional moments without taking any action. Thus, the user can fully enjoy all the moments without ever worrying them slipping away.
Vivre utilizes an Electrodermal Activity (EDA) sensor to measure a wearer’s interests to events. When the wearer’s interests reach certain degree, the built-in camera will be triggered to record video.
The EDA sensor detects wearer’s interests and quantifies it in a range from 0 to 100.
When interests reach/exceed 60, the wide-angle camera starts to record video. As interests fall off 60, the camera stops capturing within 3 seconds.
Each video will initially be saved in Vivre’s internal storage, then it gets uploaded to the cellphone via bluetooth. After each transfer, Vivre will automatically delete the uploaded video to free up spaces for the next recording.
Vivre’s sleek and clean lines create a form that is as much about fashion as it is about function. Vivre comes with multiple color-ways that will help you look great throughout your day.
Vivre features a built-in auto on/off grip sensor and one-button operation. When you touch the necklace, it automatically turns on the device and lights up the battery indicators. A simple one-click on the capture button will give you a snapshot, while a long click will start a video recording.
Vivre is charged wirelessly when placed onto the charging tray. It utilizes WattUp® Radio Frequency (RF) system to delivers safe wire-free charging energy. Through this, user can feel more attached to Vivre as if it was a normal necklace
Vivre charging tray is comprised with two parts: A tray that charges the Vivre necklace, and a detachable charger that you plug into the outlet to charge the tray itself.
In the Vivre mobile app, you can quickly see all the moments that have been uploaded. You can also see moments of your significant others simultaneously.
