Problem Statement

How might we make more usable accessorised technology?

In our empathy interviews we found that many people may not be able to afford a smartwatch. So we came up with the idea to take everyday objects that we use and add some technology into them.


Customer / Problem

Our customers are students and young people who are looking for affordable but stylish wearable technology accessories, for example watches and glasses.


Solution

We came up with 5 ideas during the ideation phase:

- A phone with a solar panel to charge it

- A necklace with a little chip that you can use to access wifi

- A pair of glasses that you can see holograms through

- A scrunchie that has a tracker in it

- A taser pen that can also draw in the air

Our classmates said they were most interested in the pen idea and provided some feedback, suggesting that we make a few more modifications. We drew a prototype that included a clock(digital), camera, a lighter, a computer(hologram), SOS button, flashlight, pen and whiteboard marker and a pen tip that could draw in the air.
