  1. 1. Circles of Faith A future concept by Rahul Sen
  2. 2. Faith is ubiquitious in India, and many parts of the World
  3. 3. The Challenge To unearth alternatives to computers and mobile devices to empower people in digitally excluded areas. The objective is communication. The inspiration is from ubiquitious acts of faith and connectivity.
  4. 4. The Users Digitally excluded. Little or no access to computers. Family members dislocated. Illiterate.
  5. 5. Paper prototypes Several paper prototypes were made to test the interaction between such a ‘bracelet’ and a ‘prayer wheel’.
  6. 6. Paper prototypes Several paper prototypes were made to test the interaction between such a ‘bracelet’ and a ‘prayer wheel’.
  7. 7. Experience prototype Models were used to test and think through various modes of triggering inputs. Tilt, press, heat, vibration, tapping and other modes of input were tested.
  8. 8. Experience prototype Models were used to test and think through various modes of triggering inputs. Tilt, press, heat, vibration, tapping and other modes of input were tested.
  9. 9. Introducing the Bracelet
  10. 10. Introducing the Bracelet
  11. 11. Wheel Similar to a SIM card, the Wheel links the bracelet to a Hub or a source. Wheels have OLED surfaces with inscriptions similar to the ones on the parent bracelet. Bracelet Similar to a Mobile Phone, the Wheel links the bracelet to a Hub or a source. Wheels have OLED surfaces with inscriptions similar to the ones on the parent bracelet. Communication is possible with docked Wheels to any of the parent Bracelets Community wheel This is a family of all the parent wheels of bracelets . They stack up and act as message boards for the entire community that is docked to the base.
  12. 12. Wheel Dock Like the trunk of tree, the dock axle is the tie between all the Wheels and Bracelets that are shared by a community. Base This is the power supply of the experience. Bracelet
  13. 13. Docking a Wheel - gives ‘Life’
  14. 14. Docking a Wheel - gives ‘Life’

  16. 16. Docking a Wheel - gives ‘Life’
  17. 17. How it works.
  18. 18. How it works.
  19. 19. User 1 User 2 Home / Hub
  20. 20. Connecting Bracelets & Wheels. User 1 User 2 Home / Hub
  21. 21. User 1 User 2 Home / Hub
  22. 22. When neither are wearing bracelets... the Bracelet sleeps. User 1 User 2 Home / Hub
  23. 23. Wearing communities. Sharing connections.
  24. 24. Thank you! This project would have not been possible without the help of: Jose ‘Pepe’ Ledon (3d modelling and rendering) Antonio Aguilar (Foam modelling) Vanessa Sattele (Painting) Camille Moussette (Experience prototyping) My college mates especially Vittorio, Annika, Sara Tunheden, Helle, Donato, and Stina for their support and ideas. Most importantly, Thank you Caroline for being my rock.
