As people age, they may perceive time passing quicker than in their youth. However, this phenomenon may not apply to Gen Z, whose perception of time is unique compared to previous generations. This project aims to help us have more control over the passage of time by breaking mindless scrolling habits and changing our behaviors by improving our cognitive processing speed.
In childhood, we feel like time passes slowly. Because our cognitive skills are still developing. Many experiences we go through are novel, and our brain works harder to process new experiences into memory. Therefore, we pay less attention to the passage of time. On the other hand, as we age, we not only experience a more familiar routine, but our cognitive processing speed starts to decline. This results in having less frame rate to process information within a second.
Slo-scro includes a screen time management feature that allows users to set up screen time limits, helping them break their mindless scrolling habits. I gamified the app icons into the villains that users need to defeat. They are ranked from the most powerful to the least powerful based on your screen time.
Users will receive a 30-second randomized game that trains their reaction speed, which helps to increase the frame rate. Here, TikTok being the top enemy on the rank will come and attack you at a faster speed. When the game ends, the app will assign you a number of slo-scrolls based on your performance.
