We started thinking what technology is accessible aka does not cost a fortune. Also whether it would make sense to use in the office environment. The next day day Joe brought his FitBit. Looking though the school's storage room, we found Philipps Hue bulbs. The match made in heaven right here!
Hue bulbs are able to reproduce the whole color spectrum based off an input. But what colors we want it it show? We read up found a Circadian Rhythm theory. A study on how colors around you affect your mood, productivity and behaviours. I have experienced it in Europe in February... I know, #WhitePeopleProblems.
The idea was to synch Hue and FitBit for an ambient experience/ visual signal. The bulb would light up in an appropriate color via hacking into FitBit's most recent data. Signals from tracker is not enough, people might just ignore it. Yet when there is a visual signal right there on your table top it is harder to ignore. Plus there is a big social factor to it.
