My favourite exhibit

I like it because it is an awesome and unusual clock. It is easy to read the time as it is in words and it lights up :D

Red Dot museum items

Combine: This design combines the shape of a flower and a light.

Put to other use: This design is a figurine that you place in your
                                                            phone's earphone jack. Instead of beautifying, it also helps to                         keep dust and water out of the phone.
                                         Combine: Combines a handphone cover and a charger/power                                                                    pack.
                                  Substitute: This sunglasses substitutes normal lens with shaded ones.
                                  Eliminate: This shoe eliminates the need for shoelaces.
 This object is also my favourite as it is unique and looks nice.

Can you find examples of SCAMPER?

I found them.

 This lightings look like birds or flying insects from far. This is borrowing a design from an animal, and trying to put it to use in a different way.

This chair has a unique wooden texture. It adapts to the nature atmosphere.

 This hanger combines the shape of tree, or maybe the layout of the branches. This structure eliminates the need of separate hangers.
By substituting lame and dull colours, Apple coated the iPod Nano with bright accents. The smooth new anodized aluminum design makes iPod nano feel as good as it sounds. And iPod nano wouldn’t be iPod nano without gorgeous, hard-to-choose-from colors.

Learn From It:

Name one thing that you have learnt from the designs that you have seen in the Red Dot Museum.

Have a direction in mind when designing a product.

Red Dot Museum (Ryan Ng)

The paper kit uses paper to substitute as metal for utensils.

The V8 GTS was inspired by race car engines which touches on the aspect of "put to other use".

 Modifying and adapting by adding colours so that the ipods would not be as dull.

Combining a light green nozzle element with a housing in Moon white.

Eliminating normal electrical speakers with  rubber ones which can be washed and are less fragile.
