Tranquilo is a quick self guided meditation system for people who want to separate their home and
work life and manage their stress. Unlike traditional methods of meditation, Tranquilo gives the
user real time feedback of their mental state through colored light and a physical bubble.

Research tells us that

1 in 2 Americans say stress has
A NEGATIVE IMPACT

on their personal and professional lives
from work life.

EACH INDIVIDUAL REACTS
TO STRESS DIFFERENTLY

Thus have different approaches to de-stressing and relaxing. Some people didn't realize that they were suffering  from the stress of constantly being tense from work. 

Some prefered physical activity, while others prefered to participate in meditation-like activities, like breathing practices. 

USER RESEARCH

Before we started my team conducted more than 20 individual interviews with potential users and experts, in orders to have a better understanding of whom we were designing for and what were the common problems they have. We talked to firefighters who work under extreme pressure; consultants who deal with other people's issues every day; lawyers who have to be highly focused.

We found out that the typical problem they have is the difficulty in shutting off their mind after work and stop thinking about work subconsciously.

MEDITATION

We found success stories in meditation, but many users were deterred by the lack of feedback
when attempting it the first time. Our opportunity space lay in bridging meditation with visual feedback. 

A MENTAL BOUNDARY
BETWEEN WORK AND HOME

In order to help people balance their lives and
manage stress, we created a system that helps people
separate their home. People are able to enjoy their
personal time by fully immersing in it.

A QUICK SELF-GUIDED
MEDITATION SYSTEM

Tranquilo gives the user real time feedback of their mental state
through colored light and a physical bubble.

The user puts the EEG headpiece on and starts by focusing on the bubble.
As the user begins to calm and relax by focusing on breathing, the bubble begins to grow in size,
reflecting the user’s state of calmness.

 

 

 

 

 

 

REAL-TIME FEEDBACK by TRACKING BRAINWAVES

Tranquilo provides accurate, real-time feedback by tracking brainwaves and displaying them through the bubble’ color and size.

 

THE BUBBLES

The bubble is a light breathing guide and focal point. Users can follow the center light to inhale and exhale to reach their calm state more quickly.

GESTURE CONTROLLED

The interface provides an intuitive first interaction between the user and the product, which  becomes a ritual overtime.

PROGRESS

The user can track their progress over the course of days, months, and years thru the mobile app.
