Outcome: A Blue Prototype & a Re-Coloured working Prototype of D.I.S.C.O.N.N.E.C.T. This Includes a working LCD screen powered by Photon kit, working phone notification pop up alert and a Disconnect Timer countdown application & icon programmed with Xcode.

This self driven project was based on the final year dissertation. The personal topic chosen on digital distractions led to DISCONNECT, the smart object that knows when you need to take a break from your own smart devices, and in turn promote other activities you, the user, could do away from the distractions. The idea was not to completely disregard technology but to work with it. The following is an extract from the dissertation hypothesis.
