Procrastination

What is the problem?

  Procrastination is a very common issue among not only students but grown-ups as well.

People often easily procrastinate but eventually face problems such as having no work done

in time or losing further Interest. There are alarm clock or app, but they either don't help

you focus much or just become another source of distraction.

Analyzing 

  Our team gathered to talk about the issue and come up with

possible solutions. One thing we all agreed was that 

it had to be simple to use, but is bit hard to turn it off.

Applying the 'Pomodoro' technique

  Pomodoro technique is a proven method used for preventing

procrastinating, a method which the user can control their 

workflow.

Rough concepts

  Looking back into what and why people would use time devices for.

Form exploration

 The shape had to be smooth, friendly and also easy for the user to understand.

Mock ups

Based on mutiple form exploration, the best method found was to focus on the original shape,

 

but also making it so it does not 100% tell what it is.

Final model

  Infi ultimately earned the hourglass like shape. It showed how traditional form which resembles

an hourglass can still be used on modern devices.
