Health-E thermometer concept
Health-E thermometer concept was developed over few days as submission for the weekly prompt from the "Render Weekly" challenge on Instagram
A digital thermometer which aims at simplifying the experience of taking a temperature, envisioning it becoming more of a routine, similar to weighing yourself.
Since the submission renews every week sketches were kept to enough detail for me to make decisions before heading over to 3D
Form, materials and colour are all subdued for it to remain neutral and unobtrusive.
The dot matrix UI combined with emoticons, manages to dial down the medical factor, in conjunction with a simple app which tracks your temperature as well as add other symptoms if any along with your medication.
When it comes to charging the thinking was to keep it effortless and hence devoid of direct cable connection.
The dock serves as a permanent home for Health-E keeping it charged & ready when it's called for help.
Removing direct charging was an intentional choice to keep the thermometer compact and inconcspicuous.
The cap has a laser etchable name plate which also doubles as an anti-roll detail while resting on a surface.
The packaging was done as a time filler while some animations were rendering in the background. I wanted to simply convey the idea of how the packaging could serve as a travel case if it was kept to the bare minimum in terms of size and contents
Even contents such as user manuals could possibly be read by the consumer if the information is kept brief.
This being a casual Instagram challenge I also took the libverty to play with the tone of communication to be less serious and yet convey the information.
The rough bead blasted surface finish on the outside offers additional friction while holding.
