Allerzen is a speculative companion app for a smart mask that provides time based data on various exposures of user specific allergens. While considering the symptoms and restrictions that many individuals with allergies face in their day-to-day lives, the purpose of this app is to track a user's allergies and provide them with meaningful information in which they can regulate their exposure to the allergen.
The goal of this project was to explore the limits of data visualization through the implementation of speculative design.
The first visualization is a knob based radial chart that displays concentration values of an allergen in a gradual manner. It tracks the specific allergies inputted by a user and differentiates them through colours. Adjusting the knob by dragging on the tab on the top of the wheel will either zoom in or out of the time selection. The gradient ring on the end displays different risk levels with all the allergens combined during specific time periods.
The second visualization offers an allergen specific breakdown of the allergy the user has tapped on. The visualization itself uses the colour of the inputted allergen, and the width of each visualization is used to determine the intensity of the user's exposure to the allergen.
