A project that started as a wearable that provides connectivity for all of our devices and turned into a deep understanding of what identity means and implies.

The initial idea was to become an alternative to our smartphone dependence through a wearable device. This exploration and given the hardware implications led our team to pivot into an exploration of the meaning of identity.

I led the research (both secondary and primary) aspects plus the implications and cases that could lead to a better fit with corporate initiatives. We explored the implications in retail, marketing data, security and finally cities, where the project ended up as a possibility of a pilot. 

Models, prototypes, scenarios, results and further explorations cannot be shown in this site.
