Red Dot Museum Reflection

While exploring the museum I was intrigued by the vast number of inventions/innovations made from people just like you and I and by slowly cruising through these ideas a few had indeed caught my eye and impressed me by how brilliant it seemed and the simplicity of it!

The first design was the NM- Auto Tilt Shutters and Cordless Binds. I found it interesting as it was allowed for the public to “interact” with it letting us understand it better, which I find is one of the key principles in ideation and product realization as it is definitely important for user to have a sense of interface before commencing on the final stage such as building the product. It was cool as well unlike some of the other fancy products which didn’t allow interaction.

Second design that I found interesting was the Qlocktwo Wall and Table Clock. The moment I saw it I was blown away by the minimalist looks of it, it was probably one of the coolest clock I have ever seen before. For this design I think the person was going for a never-before seen look which appeals more to a younger generation always eager for newer looks/things. Concluding to think that this product would have a more specific range of target users for examples teens to adults as I find the words might not be as easy to interpret for the elderly and that they would prefer something a lot easier to read off from.


Last but definitely not the least, was the Aqua Symphony (Overhead Shower). I choose this product as my third choice because it provides light and music effects just by turning on the shower! How cool is that? Also has a minimalist look and high functionality as though we are in a futuristic world. I think I would classify my list of products to be of a more minimalist look as current trends and genre prefer that and inventors/innovators want their products to have that simplicity and look to appeal to their target users more. Which leads to the point where I think all their designs/concept has indeed meet the needs/targeted user’s needs.

These products definitely is one that can be visually seen and touched.
