This post is all about finding more structured ideas.
But first, rapid prototyping at Leonardo's Basement was a lot of fun. Special thanks to Ellen Wall for the documentation of the process!
I started with the SCAMPER technique for new ideas.
I used the Morphological Analysis, a table-based tool to generate more ideas.
functional --------- design embodiments
stays on face unaided --- make-up --- bugs --- goggles--- surgical masks
allows air to flow --- gore-tex --- air conditioner --- window --- pipe
keeps user warm --- fire --- furry pet --- blankets --- chemical hand warmers
easy of don/doffing --- magnets --- velcro --- snaps --- snap buckles
cleanable --- plastic --- stainless steel --- teflon --- water
One of the impractical ideas from last week was to add a small fan to the mask to prevent fogging. I will take from this the need to increase air flow.
Because I still like them I am adding the 10 ideas from last week as well:
I guess next week we narrow these down...
