Rora IoT Final Concept

A money-saving Light

The initial concept is a fade-in screen, when the user reaches their saving goal, the screen will show it fully and clearly. Before that, the screen only shows part of the picture according to the percentage of their saving goal. The picture is a random picture, the user will see the different pics for every single goal.


Then the concept goes to be a Snake game-inspired money-saving Light. The drawings for the light appearance:

Rora’s Plush Night Light Proposal

“Soft Stone”

Cell Brooch
Two butterfly wings

The artwork of Kathleen Ryan inspires me. She uses different shapes and colors of stone to represent various forms of fruit decay. My mind was drawn to the many beautiful things found in the microscopic world, and I want to make an enlarged version of the cell, using buttons and LED lights to represent the vitality of cells.

I prepared two different fabrics and several buttons in different sizes to use in the cell brooch.
