For this week's assignment I based my structured ideas off of this product that many people currently use on New Year's Eve - the confetti popper.
Here are the SCAMPER ideas I came up with this week!
(Substitute) This popper is thrown in the air at midnight and subsequently pops when the gauge inside senses that it is falling.
(Combine) This popper can be popped multiple times. Pop, pop, pop!
(Adapt) The confetti in this popper degrades and becomes dust, easily vacuumed up.
(Magnify/Modify) This popper is very large and hangs from the ceiling, exploding over a group of people or entire room.
(Put to other use) You can use this popper to pop some garland onto the christmas tree!
(Eliminate) Rather than being made out of plastic and tin foil and string and a million other tiny pieces, this popper is made mostly out of glass - this allows it to also be more suitable for fancy parties, not just low-key casual parties.
(Reverse) Instead of popping out confetti, this magnetic vacuum sucks up the magnetic confetti. It's an easy way to clean up after a great night!
I also used the morphological analysis matrix to come up with three more ideas -
This is the table I made to help generate these ideas.
This crystal confetti can hangs from the ceiling by hooks that attach to the can. While similar to one of my SCAMPER ideas, this is more versatile and could be used in smaller homes while still looking classy.
This vase sits on the table and therefore when it explodes, the confetti is much easier to clean up!
This personal confetti blower is something that one can hold up to his or her own mouth and blow the confetti out. It's more interactive and fun! A great distraction for when you've got nobody to kiss at midnight....
Last, here are my top ten ideas!
