iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2020

Ba-Boom is a smart bracelet, specially designed for working parents with newborns. It promotes shared responsibility of baby care by both mother and father. With Ba-Boom, parents can feel their baby's heartbeat in real time via subtle pulses from the bracelet, whether at home or at work. The Ba-Boom app predicts baby's needs based on the analysis of his/her previous behavior. It then informs parents about how to give their baby comfort. Additionally, it helps parents split care duties fairly, while respecting each other's sleep cycles with gentle haptic alerts.

This is truly amazing! The iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD means a lot to us, especially in terms of positively redefining gender roles. Thank you for giving us this validation and the confidence to move forward with our design careers. We will continue to design products that aim to positively impact society, such as challenging gender stereotypes and promoting sustainable change.
