iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2018

Most people have realized that their body is not healthy. When it comes to exercising, it's easy to make up your mind and never take action. The inspiration of this product comes from the baton in traditional athletic competitions. When people choose running time on the APP program, the system will randomly match the 5~6 strangers in the nearby area to form a one-day team. The user must run at the time they choose, and if the user does not run, it will affect the delivery of the baton, and it will also affect other people's plans, and the user will be punished accordingly in the APP system. This kind of supervision between strangers is formed.

While there may be some questions about the system/ infrastructure, �Hey Stranger� is an interesting concept that encourages both physical exercise and human interaction in an engaging and innovative way. Both the object and app support each other intelligently and are well designed.
