The design of a mood tracking and regulating product for students’ mental well-being

At: University of Twente

The aim of this bachelor assignment was to design a product that helps university students improve their mental well-being by tracking and regulating their mood. After a literary and user research, it was decided to use weather as a metaphor for various types of mood. The final concept is a cloud-shaped pillow that uses light, sound, and vibrations to simulate weather conditions, which provides stress relief and mood improvement to the user. The user can use an additional physical controller and an app to control the cloud, track their mood to gain more insight, and share their mood with friends and/or family to create deeper and more meaningful connections.
