Project Name: Umami
Timeline: 4 Months
Umami is a system that redefines how the school lunch experience is considered. The project started off as an exploration of the short life span of wearable fitness trackers and turned into a much more broad question of "how do people define being healthy?" The most common conclusion for most people was that when they ate healthy, they felt healthy. Targeting the elementary school lunch experience as a perfect place to teach people how to eat healthy early in life, the Umami concept was born. Umami educates kids and parents about how to eat healthy and maintain a balanced diet.
