Berlin – The electronics brand has introduced six near-future design concepts that combine technology with wellbeing.
Unveiled at IFA 2019, Balance of Being is a collection of conceptual devices from Panasonic that are designed to enhance our lifestyles and encourage a more meaningful relationship with technology. The series includes products such as SHOT, an AI-enabled device that uses camera sensing to understand a user’s health conditions. It then creates bespoke drinks from frozen fruit and vegetables to improve their inner and outer beauty.
EASE is a skincare device that is attached to a bed; during the night, it understands the user’s skin quality and delivers invisible infrared lighting and fine steam to elevate their skin condition as they sleep. Created as a response to high levels of stress in the home and workplace, WAVE is a smart massaging device that maps and evaluates the scalp to determine the duration, method and intensity of the experience.
