Prototype tracks your scrolls in social media and turns green to red after repeated use

T oday's rich digital media culture, made possible through our devices and associated services, has certainly led to a more connected, resourceful and open global society. As digital devices evolved from dial-up connected desktops to forever connected devices in our pockets, a quiet, yet substantial, shift has occurred in interaction design. While it is perceivable that many of us spend morbid amounts of time on social media feeds, cat videos and crushing candy, most of us seem oblivious of the impact of digital media culture on our emotional and physical health, and the quality of our lives. Through this thesis research I am designing ways to bring addictive digital interactions into awareness of the user, and develop tools for behavioral change. The above displayed band prototype lights up each time the user scrolls down a social feed, and can track usage over a period of time. Combining insights from user interviews, about where and when they use certain apps, and behavioral psychology, I am refining my work, building new prototypes and testing them on my user group.
