The Challenge

Business travelers and tourists share two similar pain points when they are traveling: heavy luggage and a weakened immune system from constant climate and environmental changes.

Interview

Learning From Users

Interview Goals

  • Understand what their travel routine is like

  • Understand their travel pain points

Key Findings

  1. Luggage occupied with seasonal clothing

We found out that a common cause of heavy luggage is seasonal clothing.

“I love traveling, but I hate packing. My luggage is mostly occupied with seasonal clothing…there is no space left in my luggage to put my other stuff and my bags weigh a ton…”

2. Switching seasonal clothing due to climate change can be inconvenient

When traveling from two very drastically different climates, travelers would have to change into more appropriate clothing.

“I hate changing my clothes every time I arrive at a new place, especially when I’m traveling from somewhere hot to somewhere cold.”

3. Becoming sick due to climate and environmental change

Every participant has personal experience regarding getting sick due to climate change.

“I always catch a cold or get sick due to climate changes or food poisoning…”  


Design Question

How can we allow travelers to pack lighter suitcases, while also staying healthy on the road?

Design Solutions

• Seasonal clothing occupies luggage space

All you need is one smart jacket. 

• Switching seasonal clothing due to climate change can be inconvenient

A responsive jacket that can change based on the environmental, climate or temperature change. 

• Becoming sick due to climate change

A health report, like a personal nutritionist, that keeps track of your health status to help maintain your health on the go.

Health Report

Miniall app is the user nutritionist where it provides the user’s health data from the skin tattoo that is located on the wrist of the jacket. Health report allows the user to see their health status and at the same time keep the user healthy.

Temperature Bookmark

The saved temperature bookmarks are designed for future use. According to the user’s preferences, they can save their current jacket temperature to a bookmark. There are two ways of saving a bookmark; the first way is to save it through the app and the second way is to save it through hand gesture.
