FLUID

We are an interdisciplinary team whose goal is to make technology understandable by 3 years old kids and useful to responsible grown ups. Seeqi is a friend and an assistant that wants to be nice and helpful to children and adults. Not only is it easy to use but mostly it is easy to love.

Seeki

Seeki is a wearable device designed for young children but thought for adults. This small companion will help any adult supervisor to manage a small group of pupils and alert them of any problem, to help relieve from unnecessary stress while promoting greater care.

group management assistant

The device is meant to be easily clipped on clothes or accessories, and purposely simple to use.

Proximity

Alerts the supervisor when a kid gets too far from the supervisor, the supervisor gets notified on his device.

Immersion

Alerts the supervisor if the device senses water. The software will ignore splatters to avoid false alarms.

Feedback

Gives precise information on the smartphone app (who is out of range, type of issue, clipped or unclipped, battery level).

Call and count

Counting and calling function to rapidly make sure that the group is complete and ready to go!

Feedback and notifications

Having to manage a group of kids is often stressful and brings a lot of responsibility to the supervisor, especially while doing outdoor activities. Indeed, children are curious, can be distracted by everything and are prone to being unpredictable. But worry not, Seeki is here to assist you.

I am an student in industrial design. I got into design because I thought it could change in very small but very meaningful ways the life of ordinary people. Now I believe we live in a time where design can really shape the future applications and experiences that technologies and recent innovations brought to the world. That is why I want to be part of the big change that is occurring to make sure that tomorrow will be more fun, enjoyable and simple.
