This project was designed around utilising wearable technology and a companion mobile app to create a social media platform. You can view the project submission here.
Discovering new tracks or coming across an old favourite can bring strangers together and expand personal musical horizons. Using an app designed for iOS iPhone products, and paired with a specially designed set of wireless headphones, Heavy Rotation allows users to discover and tune into the music that is being played in their physical proximity. Using the headphone scroll wheel or the interactive features on the app, users will be able to determine which song peaks their interest or let others know they are enjoying their choice in music.
We sought to find a tactical navigation control that users were familiar with and would associate with finding music. For millennials, we could associate this control with the famous iPod Click Wheel or mixing up records with a vinyl player. The scroll wheel easily allows users to scrub though different music played by other users around them and gives them fine tune control without the need to be staring at the control surface.
