Smart Phone could surely facilitate convenience to our daily life but if misuse of it, negative effects would be generated in our social life and health .‘Heads Up’ adopts a humorous way to advise the phubbers on the malpractice.
Lap’s idea is to test this interactive art in MTR stations. Once they are sensed by our installation, a specific laser beam and LED light will shoot on their phone’s screen as the triggers to warn the phubber to stop such malpractice. With an ultimate target, Lap hopes that this design can be extended to other public facilities to lower the adverse influence, to those phubbers and people around.
Lap 的構思是於人多的地鐵車站作試驗，當使用者埋頭於手機的時候，「Heads Up」裝置就會發出獨立提示，以光束投射於其手機顯示屏上，令他們醒覺。Lap的目標是將設計推展至其他公共設施，以減低低頭族帶來的不便。
