- Can you find examples of SCAMPER from the exhibits (represent each alphabet of SCAMPER with photographs as evidence)?
We saw a clock which substituted words for numbers.
We saw a combination of baby bottles and trees, forming a unique piece of artwork.
We saw a lamp that adapted to the fact that it may be knocked over or crushed. This lamp is not easily knocked over and can be compressed.
We saw a chair with the shape of the Google Drive logo. The chair looks nice and yet still can serve its purpose.(Form follows function)
- Put to other use
As from above, we saw many baby milk bottles held up by thin black rods that formed an artwork.
There was a picture shown on Morph Adaptive Sole. They eliminated the shoe and showed that you can "wear" this sole without the shoe and still can be able to run.
We saw a lamp that rearranged the light bulbs such that it looked like a tree.
Learn From It:
- Name one thing (per group member) that you have learnt from the designs that you have seen in Red Dot Museum.
Simplicity is better than complexity.
Observing the world and applying it.
Efficiency of objects is key
Problems can always be solved
Multiple functions changes an object
- Take a picture of the design(s) that your group likes most and explain how it relates to the project that your group will be working on.
These pictures all teach us a lesson and gives us criterias that we can choose from.
The first picture shows that there may be an existing product that is not used for that specific purpose.(In the picture it shows that words are not used in clocks but can be represented through words)
The second picture shows that the product must be flexible in a sense that it needs to be able to withstand the, in our case is heat and oil, forces that may act on it.
The third picture shows that it should have multiple purposes for it to be sellable.
The last picture shows that the design of the object should not remove any perks offered.
