How could smart jewelry bring you closer to those you love, make you more mindful, and connect you to the world around you?

The future of human interaction and wearables is something of a concern for companies like SKAGEN, who are looking to naturally incorporate technology into wearable timekeeping devices. In 2017 SKAGEN came to SCAD with the idea of exploring what the future of wearables could be, and how to create them in a way that would bring people closer together and improve quality of life.

The Danish concept of hygge is contentment, friendliness, and comfort. Our starting point was to explore what brought people together in this way, and eventually to design products that exuded this concept.

Through the above exploration we determined three areas of specific focus; Internal Interaction, Social Interaction, and Digital-Social Interaction.

Internal Interaction addresses the self confrontation of your own stress and anxiety, and prompts the user to directly address it.

Social interaction deals with the lack of physical touch that the 'Uber-ization" of our world can bring, and how to bring back spontaneous interaction.

Digital-Social Interaction lies in the presence of the social media culture of constant documentation, and how to remain in the moment without living behind a camera.

Our three concepts that we presented to SKAGEN were Ojeblik, Embrace, and Space.

Embrace is a wearable that keeps an eye on your stress level, and reminds you in those moments to slow down and decompress.

Ojeblik is a wearable that lets you record events and experiences and re-live them with the people you initially experienced it with,

Space is a concept that optimizes the living environment to your needs via a wearable. For example, if it senses that you are too hot it'll cool your apartment as you arrive.
