Beyond Accessory

 

This project had the goal to design a piece of jewellery that contains some sort of intelligence. This project was continued during an internship at ProtoSpace, where the focus was on building a working prototype.

 

Reflect is a brooch that is worn both during and after sporting. During exercise the arm of the brooch will go up an down and push the gear. This energy that is generated by movement of the human body will be stored in the brooch. Afterwards is starts rewinding, which shows an interesting visual effect. The longer you are exercising, the longer you can enjoy the rewinding effect. In this way Reflect becomes a reward for physical activity.
