Survival Of Missing Out / Concept including 3D Models

Survival Of Missing Out
Survival Of Missing Out

SOMO is a survival-kit-like package for the people of the modern time who suffer from smartphone and social media addiction. Its concept is based on the theory of critical design. SOMO takes basic components of life like knowledge, emotions, inspiration and orientation out of the smartphone context and brings them, with the help of witty objects, back into the day-to-day life. The concept should bring the idea of «joy of missing out» closer to the user. «JOMO» can be a healthier way of living and proves that you don't always have to be up-to-date on everything to live a happy life – you can survive the "fear of missing out".
