The product that caught my eye was this Airblock drone for education. I always thought that drones were interesting especially camera drones because they allow you to film a beautiful view and magnificent wide angle scenery. However, I always felt that the designs of drones could be improved to improve the safety of the machine because the exposed propellers are extremely dangerous and intimidating so the moment I saw this drone, I was drawn to it. The design allowed the propellers to work to its potential yet has protective walls around it for easy handling. On top of that, the overall design gave the product a really interesting look almost like a honeycomb look. Hence to me, this product fulfils the maximum potential of the function, emotion and human factor.
For this slow cooker, I would say that it leans more towards the emotion part, since to me the design looked more retro and would seem to evoke more sentiments for buyers to be interested in purchasing the product. In terms of function and human factors, I do not think it was really lacking in it as it would definitely function nicely as a slow cooker with the design to adjust different pressures and the design caters nicely to human usage as well with the handles for ease of handling.
For the kettle, I felt that it caters more towards the function . The design allowed for a large water capacity and also the sleek design allows for a maximisation of space. While it serves its function, I felt that it was lacking in the human factors and emotion sector as it felt very rigid design wise. I also felt that more details could be in the design in order to score for the human factors, for example the spout could have a lid to prevent dust from entering.
For the first item that I took interest was this slow cooker. Amongst the trend of having steel and slivery appearance on the exterior, this slow cooker retained a very retro look with the browns and the beige colours. It brings a sense of nostalgia and as if the food was slow cooked in a pot lit by charcoal rather than gas.
The second item was this kettle and I really appreciate how minimal it looks. I really like the sleek design that it is just a simple cylinder with a handle that curves perfectly to the kettle. Apart from the fancy kettle designs available in the market now, seeing something so simple was really pleasing to my eyes.
