Envisioning the Quantified Self: Human-Centered Design for Interactive Health, Wellness and Fitness Technologies

Recipient Institution: 
Art Center College of Design
Principal Investigator: 
Brian Boyl
Grant Amount: $16,000
Year: 2013

The market for self-sensing and self-tracking of the human body and the many variables that affect well-being (the “Quantified Self” movement) is growing rapidly. This grant supports a new course at Art Center College of Design in which students will develop new, wearable, “Quantified Self” technologies. In the new course, teams will produce high-quality deliverables, including storyboards narrating the interaction of the product and the human. The best teams will enter the college’s new Innovation Accelerator program and develop their ideas further.
