Balance of Being

LAYER has explored the intersection between home, wellbeing and technology with the launch of ‘Balance of being’:a collection of new product concepts bringing to life a new philosophy. The collection of six near-future design concepts sensitively combine emerging technology with sophisticated experience design and explore how we can have more meaningful engagements with products and how we take care of ourselves.

Based on a smart visual analysis of skin condition, SHOT uses camera sensing on the front of the device, advanced AI, combined with a selection of fresh frozen fruit and vegetable TBC. to deliver a wellbeing experience that creates highly-nutritious, bespoke drinks to improve a person’s health.
