I worked on a team to research and determine a problem while traveling abroad. Based on our survey and UX research tools, we determined that people struggle with finding experiences right for their personality while abroad. For more reasearch, view our process blog at studioexploration.tumblr.com.
After determining a problem, we wire-framed potential solutions. Our discovery was people want to have both experiences tailored to them and the feeling of "stumbling upon" a place while traveling.
Our solution is a system that incorporates a wearable tech device, app and website, that gracefully navigates explorers abroad.
The band elegantly directs you to locations tailored to your interests determined by the App.
App users enter in a profile. A digital personality is generated and a recommendation engine comes up with designations based on experieces by customers with similar personality traits.
The band is desinged to have a removable clip, to easily be warn 2-ways.

Users can go online after a day of exploring and view their abstract map. The map can be shared on social media, printed onto merchandise or saved as a memory.
