Above application is Model 2. Below are my applications for Model 2.
First one is called “ChoCorn Froyo”. In short for Chocolate + Corn + Froyo, this hot-cold dessert is made up of a grilled corn-on-the-cob, and it is topped with froyo ( frozen yoghurt ). A wafer stick is planted at the side and a ferrero rocher is placed in between. I thought this hot-cold dessert would be good because it’s shape is different from any other typical food desserts which are normally flat. The SO that is the ferrero rocher, would give a chocolatey taste on top of the warm corn and cold yoghurt, thus adding a bit of chocolatey + crunchy taste!
Also, another application would be a playground specially for hamsters – “Ham-Ground” for short. ” Ham-Ground” is sketched out as seen below. Wood is used for both D and SO because it has rough texture and doesn’t get hot easily. That makes it hamster-friendly because they can easily climb up and down the “hill” with their small and fragile legs.
Next, a “bridge” and “food corner”, that is made up of a wooden SD and metal SO respectively. The slanted bridge would be for the hamster to get a good view of the top or maybe slide up to down for a cheap thrill. After a tiring workout of climbing up the “hill” and playing “slide”, they can take a break in the food corner, where it is a metallic sphere containing all their favourite foods. I think the metal adds a bit of contrast to wooden material, and it would be good in keeping their foods or themselves warm and some physical protection from annoying human fingers.
The ground of the cone, would be made up of soft rug/fabric. This would allow a hamsters a softer feel of their legs after a hard workout climbing around. It is also a good hideout to rest.
Overall, I chose Model 2 because I could visualize something good out of it. I thought of a hamster playground and some dessert to make out of Model 2. The dominant cone would be quite exquisite in terms of the way it would show food, when normally food is presented flat. On the other hand, the spherical shape reminds me of a hollow ball I used to buy for my hamster. Just like a hamster wheel, the ball contains the hamster and it gets to roll around the house whenever and wherever. So, that’s why I’d make Model 2 into something useful for hamster- like a playground of some sort. 🙂
