Toothbrush Design


Activity 1: 

In groups of 4, think of a design that you all use/experience regularly. Research 2-3 other iterations of that design (it could be earlier iterations or designs of the same thing but for made different users) 

Group members: 

  • Zainab
  • Peizhu
  • Matthew 
  • Navisha 

What Object did you choose?


2-3 Iterations: (Photos preferred!)

  1. Why do you think some one invented this product?   To better clean their teeth without hurting their mouth. The toothbrush is also portable and can be used more than once. 
  2. Who is the intended user of each object?   The intended user was people who wanted their teeth cleaned. 
  3. How and why are these iterations different? The different iterations improves more upon efficient teeth cleaningImageImageImage
  4. Bonus: Can you think of any unintended uses for this product? (example: scissors for curling ribbon) Toothbrushes can be used to clean other things such as shoes, crabs, art etc. Toothbrush also led to the creation of other types of brushes like hairbrushes etc.
