Through observations and personal experiences, we identified the main challenges and benefits of the wristband.

Proposal #1

We are inspired by the growing scope of biometrics in our world.

Technology, when integrated respectfully, fosters more human interaction, not less.

We digitally prototyped the tablet interface.

Proposal #2

Wristbands in other contexts (like music festivals) have added value in addition to being an ID device.

We also roughly prototyped this digital interface as well.

Proposal #3

We explored analogous models of context-aware messaging...

... and moved away from a culture of NO.

Graphics could be integrated throughout the environment of the hospital room in places where the patient and nurses naturally look. These graphics could include wristband-reinforcing messages.
