Lify

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Herbal Brewer

INSPIRATION:
Inspired by traditional Chinese herbal tea drinking culture in Hong Kong and Southern China from hundreds of years ago, where it has been a time-honoured health drink that helps people to feel better with various mixed herbal tea blends. Research shows that younger generations are becoming more health conscious.The motive is to develop a modernised solution of brewing Chinese herbal tea with convenience and create a personalised user-centric healthy lifestyle experience.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
User can start by placing a herbal disc vertically into the slot by pushing backwards the handle. Then, user can either choose to press the cross button and start automatic brewing process; or personalise the brewing formula through the phone Application. When user feels in need for a herbal tea cure, user can make a quick diagnosis in App and user will be recommended to drink a certain herbal tea blend. User can then brew the selected herbal tea and personalise the brewing parameters i.e infusion time, temperature and brewing volume. User can also purchase herbal discs in-App and have them delivered at home.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Qualitative research on healthy lifestyle habits; market research on herbal tea consumption globally ; interviews with targeted audience and industrial players to gain insights and generate design solutions; research on traditional herbal tea brewing method; conducted experiments on herbal ingredients testing in herbal disc and quality outcome; research on relationship between emotion health and therapeutic lighting; researched on herbal disc packaging material; experiment on different brewing formula; prototypes to test form, functions; UX testing with demo App.

CHALLENGE:
Main challenge is the 'internet of things' communication between machine and App. The interaction between the brewer and App is designed to be seamless and user-friendly. The App recommends various herbal tea blends to the user based on their habits and conditions, and once selected by the user, the App transmits the brewing command and brewing parameters to the brewer through Wifi.
