Interaction Design / UI & UX

Aha is a social platform that connects people with the inspiration that they want in their everyday lives. The Aha ring is a smart object designed to work in conjunction with an app platform. People are often too absorbed in their own tasks to consider other matters that might be sources of inspiration. By limiting the user to a five-second "thinking" period and a minute-long answering period, I have designed a space where individuals are forced to think quickly and express their opinion about a predetermined topic. I hope to emulate the spontaneity of an improv environment, which I have experienced to be valuable in the creative context. The value proposition of this app is that users will be challenged by the delineated interaction to think differently and become inspired.
