PRODUCT IDEATION & MOBILE IOS PROTOTYPE
Sleep is one of the most vital players in maintaining physical health and well-being throughout one’s life. In, fact your mood when you wake up and throughout the day largely depend on what is occurring when you are sleeping. During sleep, the body is working hard to bolster healthy brain function and preserve physical health. It can also play an important role in growth and development in children and teens. However, sleep deficiency can have severely harmful effects on our bodies.
After doing extensive research and conducting a number of interviews, we have found that in order to be successful, sleep must satisfy two basic needs - comfort and efficiency.
While there are many products that aim to solve many of the universal sleeping problems associated with these two needs, there has yet to exist a holistic solution that addresses these issues all at once. Because sleep can be disrupted by so many confounding variables, it is important to tackle as many as we can to minimize the disturbances and maximize the sleep.
HOW MIGHT WE DESIGN A CUSTOMIZABLE & SEAMLESS SLEEP EXPERIENCE THROUGH ONE MULTIFACETED SOLUTION?
CLOUD Z is a blanket with dynamic and customizable properties that can be individually tailored to provide the best possible sleep experience for each user.
Through simple interventions combined with new technological advancements, CLOUD Z is a one-stop shop to sleep heaven.
The blanket comes with a unique User ID that can be inputted into the accompanying CLOUD Z mobile application, so that the user may customize their sleep experience through their phone.
