log(me): Speech-Tracking Wearable

log(me) is an iPhone app—that with the aid of a smart necklace—provides private, in-app, emotional portraits based on function word usage.

A product born from the feeling that quantified self gadgets should aspire to initiate deep personal reflection and not simply binary behavior change. By borrowing the metaphor and objective of a diary, I developed a device that could comb through a users words—by passively listening to their speech—and generate fully automated scores of their honesty, confidence and emotional balances.

log(me) is built natively for iOS and the necklaces are made from various materials: ranging from 3D-printed brass to zebra wood.

Role: Sole Creator
