Basis: A Wellness Monitor and UI Design by Postmammal

With the advent of smartphones, personal gps and mass social-media integration, life-tracking habits and devices are becoming more and more common, if not the norm. Much like the Nike Fuelband or the Jawbone UP, the wrist-worn Basis is a device that tracks wellness through heart rate and activity level.

Basis however seems as if it will be more of a lifestyle tool and less of a gadget than others in the pack. Part of what creates that perception for me is this beautiful UI concept. These early design direction concepts for the website and interface create a place and experience that a user would want to interact with on a daily basis, to see both short and long-term results. Other devices seem to play toward instant gratification with social media pushing, grand totals and game-driven interaction.

These concept products and interfaces were designed by San Francisco-based Postmammal, the collective works of Robert Murdock. His pseudonym is based on "the notion that humans are always evolving, and are always looking for what's next — essentially what's beyond human"—a fitting mantra for products like Basis. The data infographics are friendly, colorful and easy to read, and the product design is clean and modern, appearing as smart on the outside as it is on the inside.
