Some of the potential problems that most students would have are in the areas of visualisation of their proposed ideas. For today's lesson, what we are going to do is to leverage on the flexibility of Playdoh for ideation and visualisation.
One of the main problem that one faces when charging a few electrical appliance at one go is the mess created by all the cables from a single power point. A possible scenario would look something like the picture shown below:
Task: Create a handphone charger set/unit.
Your proposed designs should fulfill the following considerations:
Able to hold and charge the handphone concurrently
Able to be secure the charging cables neatly and safely
Can be used for most power-points in Singapore (either 3-pin or 2-pin plugs)
No sharp corners and easy to be used by the target group
Target group is anybody who has a mobile phone
Use the Playdoh to create a model of your intended design or designs, and sketch it out on your sketchbooks. Take a picture of BOTH your models and sketches and upload them in your ADMT personal blog, putting in the URL in the 'Comments' section of this post.
