Perfect Day

Perfect Day is an Emotion-Based Real-Time System that aids users in formulating and
elevating their daily productivity by setting them in the right mood at the right time.

Perfect Day is a new integration of Neurotechnology reflecting on how data mirroring can be used. This news application is designed to address the notion of what is believed to be a Perfect Day. possessing sufficient information is the best way in learning about their self-identity.

Mood Score
 

Mood Score is a parametric conversion customised to your neurocognitive sampling. Synchronising your neural responses on your daily task, we used Perfect Day Mood Score to construct a mood awareness as a form of attained direction towards analysing your neural data Your mood score is a means of encapsulating large amounts of neural data and displaying it in a user-friendly way. We felt that having a simple numbering system called your 'score' was a tactical response to human nature and the draw to scoring systems. It is also a very quick and easy way to understand your mood visually as opposed to feeling it.

Having a score rating out of ten also makes this much more shareable as the scale is fairly small, this allows users to feel more comfortable sharing this type of sensitive information with friends through the app. Through the use of the smart mirror, we found that having a number out of ten was a great way for the user to see what their mood was like on the fly, not having to
break down any complex information allows the user to have a general understanding of their mood from a glance.

Infrastructure Development


By using the Perfect Day application your mood is being constantly tracked and harvested to change your environment. What if this same data could be aligned with the routes you take during your daily commute?

This data can not only propose to you a more desirable path to take on your daily commute. With your help, it can physically shape your environment?

Vision for DI (Data Infrastructure)

Creating a perfect day is more than having your environment changed to suit your mood or desired outcomes. There are many interactions that happen throughout the day that affect the way we feel and interact. This could be a traffic light that takes far too long, to incredibly noisy construction in urban work areas.


By using the information the Perfect Day app collects (Gps location and sensory mood analysis) we are able to monitor these changes in mood,  when they occur and for what reason. We can then match this information with other users who are experiencing similar issues. If this information lands in the right hands we are able to change the focus of development in urban city landscapes to work with the citizens.

Looking Ahead

Enhance Your Day
 

The idea of 'enhance my day' is to create a very manageable and hassle-free way of letting the application take some more control over the settings in your application by making simple choices for you. This one-button helps the user avoid multiple screens and settings.

Through the information gathered from using the Perfect Day app, the built-in AI can simulate an experience for the user that it believes could increase your mood and your experience overall.


The features 'Enhance my day' can control are only limited to what you choose through connectivity to your home devices right through to social sharing. People can have an almost entirely hands-off experience that is subject to the users' mood and previous choices.

Smart Mirror

We try to collect as many forms of data as we can to give the most accurate feedback to our
users, therefore not only do we accumulate neural data for our system, but we also analyze users' emotions through understanding their facial expressions through the mirror.

We then use this information as a supplementary source of data to contribute to the final conclusions. The aim of the integration of smart mirrors is to heighten the overall experience because the image of self helps create a stronger connection during the process of self-reflection.

Most of us associate looking in the mirror with narcissism or feelings of inadequacy, but learning how to see yourself in your own reflection can increase self-compassion, aid stress management, and improve relationships and emotional resilience. Mirrors evoke strong feelings in us – and they can also be incredibly powerful tools for changing our perspective.

Checkpoints

The checkpoints feature allows users to view exact dates in their calendar to see what their
mood score and settings were like on any particular day. Not only can you see how amazing you were feeling on your grandma's birthday, you are able to restore to that checkpoint to experience the settings your application was running for that day for example your mood playlist (playlist created based on your mood) through to who else was sharing a high mood score at the time out of your close friend's list.


With checkpoints, we believe it is not only important to relive these days but to use it as a way to restore your settings in case things have not been going your way. It is understandable to have a series of 'not so great days and we wanted the user to not feel locked into a cycle and feel like the application was always trying to cheer them up. This is almost a refresh, allowing the user to take control back and find a new branch to grow out from.
