Wearable notification, storage and IOT technology
Wearable tech innovation
Noti was developed as a response to the cost of purchasing a smart watch. Our client realised there was a more innovative and cost-effective product that could be developed. The Noti aides its users with daily life, reduces social, workplace and classroom disruption and acts as a data storage device for the transfer and safekeeping of users’ most important files and documents.
Small design, big ambitions
As The Noti was designed to be worn in various ways on the human body, it was imperative to keep the balance between ergonomics and aesthetics. Furthermore, as the PCB’s size helped to determine the enclosure size, it provided clear guidelines to the project; in regards to The Noti’s overall size. The USB flash drive was a critical element in the product and finding the right placement for the USB jack was a key design challenge.
The screen and notification system also went through an evolution throughout the design phases. The challenge was to provide a cool product that also gave users the information they needed from the device. Initially this was achieved with a series of colored LEDs but this was seen to be too abstract for the casual user, and so a LED display was chosen instead as it is far less abstract and much clearer at a glance, fitting with the expected use cases of the device.
