  • 1. Sunscreen Challenge A conceptual design by Alan Viverette Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu Design Challenge Get people to apply sunscreen every day.
  • 2. Sunscreen Challenge <ul><li>Persuasive Purpose </li></ul><ul><ul><li>To get people to apply sunscreen every day. </li></ul></ul>Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu <ul><li>Industrial Design </li></ul>
  • 3. User Description <ul><ul><li>Former roommate, John Blessing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Wakes up late but still takes time to use hair product &amp; moisturizer </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Does not currently use sunscreen </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Has an Android-powered smartphone </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Uses RSS, Twitter, &amp; Facebook </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Friend, Raffi Mardirosian </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Wakes up with enough time to gel hair </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Does not currently use sunscreen </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Has an iPhone, checks it religiously </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Uses RSS, Blogger, &amp; Facebook </li></ul></ul></ul>Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu
  • 4. John&apos;s Daily Routine Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu Once he gets back to his room, John grabs his keys, wallet, and phone. Before putting his phone away, he texts Sunscreen Challenge. When John gets back from class, he checks his RSS feed and sees that he has gained a point in the Sunscreen Challenge. John wakes up at 10:45am even though he has class at 11am. He jumps in the shower and starts his morning ritual. Out of the shower, John combs his hair and brushes his teeth. He glances at the Sunscreen Challenge note on his mirror. Reminded that sunscreen is important, John grabs the bottle from next to his toothpaste and applies a small amount. Once the Challenge is over, John still has the half-full sunscreen bottle next to his toothpaste. He keeps using it out of habit.
  • 5. Prototype of Sunscreen Challenge Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu
  • 6. Features/Functionality <ul><ul><li>Participants sign up for (or are solicited to enter) the Sunscreen Challenge </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Free bottles of sunscreen are distributed with static-cling notes for bathroom mirrors </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Note says &amp;quot;Sunscreen Challenge&amp;quot; and has phone number for text messaging </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Sunscreen bottles are much larger than needed for duration of challenge </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Participants send text messages indicating that sunscreen has been applied </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>System provides visual progress indicator which appears on participant&apos;s RSS feed </li></ul></ul>Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu
  • 7. Theoretical Justifications <ul><ul><li>Context-based habits </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Associate applying sunscreen with the bathroom environment </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Piggybacking existing habits </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Make applying sunscreen part of the existing morning routine </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Targeting an easy market </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>People who already use bathroom products, use smart phones and Twitter </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>High ability </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Provide sunscreen as part of the pilot </li></ul></ul></ul>Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu
  • 8. Results of User Testing <ul><ul><li>Participants are unlikely to remember the phone number when they return from the bathroom </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Saving the number to a contact would help, but it&apos;s still too much effort when they&apos;re in a hurry </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Suggesting participants keep and use sunscreen bottle in bathroom is effective </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Placement and size in RSS feed is a very effective reminder of good behavior </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Participants usually check their RSS readers multiple times during the day </li></ul></ul></ul>Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu
  • 9. Shortcomings of Design <ul><ul><li>Text messaging costs money </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Current participants have unlimited texting plans, but this cannot be assumed for most people </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Gap between trigger for response behavior and actually performing the behavior </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Likely to remind people to apply sunscreen but they&apos;ll forget to check in </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>RSS may not be the most far-reaching channel </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Maybe picture messaging or Facebook? </li></ul></ul></ul>Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu
  • 10. Expansion - What else is possible? <ul><ul><li>Use a pop-up dialog on smartphone for confirmation of behavior </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Could be applied to formation of any habit, but has high entry cost of installing an application </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use a text message as a trigger rather than a mirror sticky </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Increases ability to respond that behavior has been performed </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use channels other than RSS for motivation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Facebook would make motivation a social rather than personal element </li></ul></ul></ul>Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu
  • 11. Next Steps in Design Process <ul><ul><li>Design static cling for reminding participants to apply sunscreen and text that they did </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Find a target audience that uses RSS readers and text messaging </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Implement automatic tracking for text messages and RSS posting </li></ul></ul>Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu
