Combining two immiscible liquids in a transparent box is not a new idea, we all recall hourglasses or snow globes built with the same system. The nice idea of Emulsion is to see in this solution a potential analog activity tracker. The aesthetic of the screen changes with the activity done by the user, in a simple and intuitive way because when the product is left still the liquids merge again.
