MORII

Mobile Product Design



Travel is a sensory experience that allows people to explore the world, and their souvenirs should not only be proof of their trails but also carriers of memory. In other words, the value and meaning of souvenir-collecting is to help travelers reminisce about their unique experiences. Yet mass-produced keychains, t-shirts, and snow globes devalue the potential of the souvenir, failing to form deeper emotional bonds between travel and experience. Instead, we should be the creators and narrators of our own travel memories

Photographs are the most common and straightforward recordings that establish a connection between travelers and their memories. Auditory experiences however, are stored for more extended periods than visual memories—when travelers go sightseeing, then, why don't they also go sighthearing? Could sounds be evolved into a tangible souvenir?

Collecting sound opens a new dimension to travel, which allows travelers to perceive and capture any precious moment in a new way. MORII is a system to capture that fleeting sound experience. By using MORII, travelers are able to create a variety of visual images made up from sound recordings and the heartbeat responses they've collected. Further, travelers can choose to create unique music composed of their ambient sounds and physical response by converting frequency into notes and heartbeat into rhythms. MORII will also visualize audio, heart rate, and other ambient information to print souvenir portraits that can also act as a physical catalog for the digital souvenir collection
旅行是一种探索世界的感官体验。纪念品不仅是足迹的证明,更是记忆的载体。换句话说,收集纪念品的价值和意义在于帮助游客回忆他们独特的经历。然而,大量生产的钥匙链、t恤和雪花玻璃球降低了纪念品的价值,未能在旅行和体验之间形成更深层次的情感纽带。事实上,我们应该成为自己旅行记忆的创造者和叙述者

照片是最常见和最直接的记录,它在旅行者和他们的记忆之间建立了联系。然而,听觉经验比视觉记忆储存的时间更长——那么,当旅行者用眼睛观光时,为什么他们不也去用耳朵观光呢?声音能演变成有形的纪念品吗?

收集声音为旅行打开了一个新的维度,它允许旅行者以一种新的方式感知和捕捉任何珍贵的时刻。MORII是一个捕捉短暂声音体验的系统。通过使用MORII,旅行者可以通过收集到的声音记录和心跳反应创造出各种各样的视觉图像。此外,游客还可以通过将频率转换为音符,将心跳转换为节奏,选择创造由周围环境声音和身体反应组成的独特音乐。MORII还将可视化音频、心率和其他环境信息来打印纪念品肖像,也可以作为数字纪念品收藏的实体目录
