Dis-connect / IoT Mood Light


How could one overcome the Fear Of Missing Out when one could easily be connected through a small mobile screen? Dis-connection presents a fun twist for people desiring digital alliance. When users insert their phone into the window-shaped device, small ‘stars’, each representing another person, illuminate through the window. This new concept of networking and watching the stars move will motivate people to give a pause, reduce their anxiety and simply relax. Leaving behind a virtual world with constant notifications looking for their attention.
