Object Design Template

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: 

  • Me
  • You
  • You

What Object did you choose?

2-3 Iterations: (Photos preferred!)

  1. Why do you think some one invented this product?
  2. Who is the intended user of each object?
  3. How and why are these iterations different?
  4. Bonus: Can you think of any unintended uses for this product? (example: scissors for curling ribbon)

    Why do you think some one invented this product?
    To have easy, acessable, portable water. To live.

    Who is the intended user of each object?
    Humans who drink water.

    How and why are these iterations different?
    They’re advances in technology (i.e plastic or metal instead of cow gut or plants)

    Bonus: Can you think of any unintended uses for this product? (example: scissors for curling ribbon)
    Holding crafts or other foods, using it as a multi-use container.
