Menstrual Lighting Box / Storage box

Menstrual Lighting Box
Menstrual Lighting Box

The beginning of the menstrual cycle is associated with the use of sanitary pads or tampons. These personal hygiene items are used during the period and not used until the next menses come. Inspired by this, we design a storage box with built-in weight detection and indicator light to keep menstrual supplies.

When the user takes supplies from the box, it logs the action and will record the first and last day of each cycle, using algorithms to turn the actions into meaningful data, estimating the average cycle length and the different phases of ovulation. It reminds the user of phase changes through a soft, colorful glow emitting from the box
