    I like the core of this idea. It has a history of working, from wearing ribbons to LiveStrong wristband. I love the idea of being able to track progress on a wearable item. I've searched for products like this and, other than golf counters (not so wearable), have not found them. I think it has potential. I don't think someone would need to use this for months. After a while, the habit gets formed.

    What isn't apparent in your design is the trigger for applying sunscreen. I wouldn't leave this to chance . . . because interventions don't work if there is not an effective trigger, either created or construed (you make something natural in the environment become the trigger). Perhaps you see putting on the necklace playing this role. Not sure this would work.

    Overall, I say keep going. I'm curious to see where this will go.

    Sunscreen Habit: The Sunset Sunscreen Habit: The Sunset Presentation Transcript

    • The Sunset Necklace A conceptual design by Neema Moraveji Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu Design Challenge To create a habit of wearing sunscreen for 5 people for 5 days. Time limit: 5 days
    • The Sunset necklace
      • Persuasive Purpose
        • To create a social movement around applying sunblock by wearing something on your person that is meant for daily wear and interaction.
      Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu Industrial Design A necklace with a neckline that is beautiful and yellow. It comes in different variations of yellow or sunset-ish.
    • User Description
        • Women concerned with raising awareness about skin cancer
        • (For my tests, 5 Stanford women.)
        • They should be particularly cognizant of the risks of skin cancer, perhaps due to:
          • family history of skin cancer
          • fair-skinned
          • other traits that make them  susceptible to skin cancer
      Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu
    • Jenny joins the Sunset movement Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu The Sunset has a notch for each day she wears sunblock. "Popping" a notch reveals a color and a single letter. The letters all spell out quotes from strong women. Later that afternoon, Jenny buys a sunset necklace and puts it on, popping the first day - kinda like birth control pills. Jenny's mother has skin cancer and her grandmother developed a nasty case. She has always been told about wearing sunscreen but she doesn't see anybody else doing it. One day she sees Angelina Jolie wearing an interesting necklace with an evening gown and hears through the grapevine that it's her Sunset Necklace. She sees a girl at Stanford wearing the Sunset Necklace! Up close, she sees that the girl's has some colorful dots on the inside of it. She collects a necklace for each month and they are cheap so she buys 12 at a time. She always pops them in order. She can see other women's sunsets and they are all popped at the same place.
    • Prototype of Sunset Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu
    • Features/Functionality
        • The Sunset has a neckline that covers the back of one's neck with a yellow band , like shown in the logo of the Skin Cancer Foundation.
        • Anything can be hung at the front of the necklace so people can customize it with related or unrelated trinkets. Famous people wear trinkets of parents who have skin cancer.
        • The inside of the neckline has 'notches' that can be 'popped' for each day. They cover the back of the neck (which is susceptible to burn/cancer) and is visible to others.
        • When a notch is popped, it reveals a letter and a color. These can be place so they face outward or inward. The letters spell the name of a woman who had skin cancer .
        • It reinforces a sense of community because all women have it and they will be curious to see each other's names/quotes.
        • Each month has a different necklace and people buy that month's necklace. Each month has quotes from a different women or theme (?) and are "collector's items".
      Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu
    • Theoretical Justifications
        • Community: like "awareness bracelets", the movement becomes part of them and their identity. They get reminded when they see each other's Sunsets and they can even ask each other for sunblock.
        • Daily reminder: If they pop out of sequence or don't pop a notch, they will get reminders from other people.
        • Span:  By design, it's  a 'span' habit for one month. If you do something for one month, it's likely that it could become a habit. Doing it for 1 day is not likely.
        • Social pressure: Join a movement.
        • Self-expression: Customize it by hanging something on your Sunset.
      Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu
    • Results of User Testing
        • Talked to a 28 yr old girl from Atlanta.
        • She said nobody would be able to see it because her hair would cover the back of her neck.
        • She would also beware of the back of the neck getting sunburned because it means "redneck" and she lives in the south so that's a no-no.
      Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu
    • Shortcomings of Design
        • Requires a critical mass to be effective.
        • Not a strong daily reminder.
        • Doing it for 'one day' as a 'trial' is unlikely.
        • If you forget, you can always pop the notch tomorrow.
      Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu
    • Expansion - What else is possible?
        • Other form factors or ID possibilities
          • Pop the notches on your virtual Sunset.
          • Combine your Sunset with other people for coolness.
          • A chip in your Sunset that tells you about other Sunsetters nearby and does coolness.
        • Other features and interactions
          • Make collectable versions for certain months.
      Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu
    • Next Steps in Design Process
        • Bring a prototype to some young women.
        • Have some natural sunblocks that could partner with Sunset.
        • Talk to the livestrong people?

    • Sunblock is as sexy as a Sunset. Stanford University, Spring 2010 CS377v - Creating Health Habits habits.stanford.edu
