“I…” / Concept band


When mobile phones become the masters of people, we often lost ourselves. So I made a “key” to put down your phone and find your soul - a smart band.
It has a progress bar that has been decaying every six hours. When the progress bar is decayed, you have to say some sentences to it with the word "I", such as "I am happy now" , "I like my new guitar" and so on. Every more sentence including “I”, the progress bar will grow more until it is full.
It will rescue you from your phone and recognize who you are that will bring you back to the real world.
