What is Shhhh?
Shhhh is a mobile application that turns off all notifications and alarms automatically to stay tuned with friends and family when spending time together. Once you install this app, you won’t be bothered by notifications that distracts you from the moment you spending time with loved ones. Shhhh is the concept project initiated by myself and the project got several media press.
Ever since the emergence of smartphones, we are always connected. However, there are some side effects growing up behind this scenery. Checking smartphones too often distracts people from having meaningful conversations. This has changed the way we have conversations with others.
You don't need to open the app on every single time whenever you are with friends. Once you setup the app, you won't even notice that shhhh is activated as shhhh will be running on the background not to disturb your conversation with loved one.
What's the right or proper way to use the ever-changing and pervaisve mobile/web technologies? Since these technologies moves forward every single day, nobody knows the definite answer, and there is no definite answer. Personally, I've been obsessed with this question for long time and am exploring this issue with various mediums. Shhhh application design has been developed as a part of my ongoing experimentation. If you have any question regarding to this project, contact here.
This project was internationally reviewed in several popular magazines, Fast Co Labs, Fast Co Exist, PSFK and many others(30 more). And I also I got numbers of inquires from people who really want to have this application while the status of app is remained as a design prototype. Also, the article from Fast Co Labs was featured as the article of 2014.
Checking Smartphones often while we are meeting friends disturbs us to have a rich communication.
