Black Mirror

This week I created a prototype for a meditative watch that lets you check in with yourself periodically throughout the day. The idea came from meditative techniques involving grounding yourself, either physically or mentally. The wearer can look into the mirrored surface and find their own face, thereby causing a moment of concentration that could ultimately lead to reduced stress and anxiety.

The mirror does not induce vanity because it's focal length and dark color prevent you from checking yourself out in the traditional sense. It's designed for checking in, not checking out. The concept also draws heavily from the television show Black Mirror; however, because this device is not digital, it counters the dystopian future portrayed in the show, using a "black mirror" for good.
