Tox Touch is a smart protection device designed for stamping workers. It combines protecting & humanistic caring functionality including finger-cots for danger detection and bracelet for data collection. Besides, Tox Touch makes the finger-cots, bracelet and machine come into a whole system, arranging suitable working schedule in terms of the collected data. Included User Research: User Observation, Interview, Persona, Story Board

OBJECTIVE

Metal pieces can be firmly stamped together But if they were HUMAN HANDS ?

Redesign a new product aimed at protecting the workers who operate small stamping machine from getting injured in accidents. The product needs to have extra humanistic conern connected with its basic function intelligently.

Tox Touch


Problem Insight Protection Device for Stamping Machine Workers

Accident occurance of stamping industry is three times higher than that of other general machinery industry.

49.7%

Lacking proper safety devices and humanistic care, stamping workers have to undertake a risk of serious

Stamping accident

Injury .

No way...

Disability

Sequelae

Problem insight of design background | Tox touch

Injury

Stamping accidents accounted for about half of the total number of serious accidents in recent years.


MACHINES RARELY BETRAY BUT DEADLY ONCE THEY DO

We began the design process with a visit to TOX PRESSOTECHNIK in Taicang China. There we learned the company synopsis, did some user observation, had a close-up view of the whole stamping process and got detailed info of existed protection devices.

Luminous carpet caring about those who get up at midnight

Product Design Team project (Work for competition) Team members: Sen Lin, Clement Liu, Panai Xiong, Zhonghui Dang

Responsible for modeling, rendering & final sketch Participated in the whole design process (research, ideation sketch, prototyping, product test & photography)

April 2015 / May 2015 - 1 month, Shanghai


Lambent is a luminous carpet designed for people who get up in the night to urinate that provides automatic soft light. Lambent focuses on offering unconscious and harmonious interaction for user. The lighting system of Lambent is pressure sensitive and intelligent that greatly fits user behavior. It is an approach to design 'Without Thought'. Included User Research: Customer Journey, Role-Playing


In the depth of night, I am afraid of glare like a vampire when I get up just to urinate...

Ideation sketch | Lambent


Facts & Theory basis

Insight & Basis | Lambent

According to the medical research, children, pregnancy and the old have to get out of bed once or twice in the night because of physiological factors (urinatio & defecation) and diseases which causes their poor sleeping quality. More melatonin is secreted during people's sleeping at night while the bright light will interrupt the melatonin secretion leading to a weakened immune system and bad health condition.


Wake up at midnight

Fall asleep

The FLOW CHART of going to bathroom during the night

Find the switch

Get out of bed

Turn off light

DESIGN GOAL

Problems Existed

Hard to find the switch in the dark

We generated our design goal after discovering the problems | Lambent

The light is blinding

To create a illumination product which is tender, easy to use and provides humanistic care

The light is on during the period

Disturb the one who sleeps next to you

Difficult to fall asleep again


Put on light

Redesign of night light

Automatic light

Ultraviolet fluorescent lamp on the wall which will light up as people approach.

The light is combined with slippers, lighting up where you go without blinding your eyes. Provide a smooth and seamless shape with the appliance of induction charging.

The reflected light in the wall gap will guide you in the darkness when you are approaching.

Selected

We design it with same reasons, moreover, you needn't find the â&#x20AC;&#x153;lightâ&#x20AC;?.

Ideation sketches leading to 3 directions | Lambent

Make it easier to switch on the light, avoiding unnecessary trouble.

The carpet light can be triggered during the process of waking up. It will automatically light up the surrounding without direct light. We try to attach affordance to it offering unconscious and harmonious interaction between user and product.

1. The user is sleeping late at night.

2. He suddenly wants to go to toilet.

3. He steps on Lambent carpet and lights up it. Lambent carpet is gradually turned on.

4. He then walks to toilet.

5. Lambient lights up the surrounding softly.

6. The light of Lambent starts to dim when there is no pressure.

7. Lambent keeps being bright gently.

8. The user comes back.

Good night ...

9. He steps on Lambent again ready for bed which triggers the turning off of Lambent.

10. He goes on sleeping.

We found a great design opportunity between the potenial function of fridge and the needs of obesity sufferer and body builder since national fitness is a big trend.


Pain Points

Questionnaire

Service Design

74% We made an online questionnaire for target users to get information of their conditions.

Lack of healthy meal

respondents have a hard time cooking a balanced meal

To create a new experience for obesity sufferer & body builder which is helpful, inspiring and customized.

Opportunities

62%

Scenarios of pain points

respondents fail to insist on controlling diet

Lack of persistence

including list of ingredients and cooking steps Body condition monitoring and daily calorie recording

90%

After analyzing the user info, we draw several storyborads to reveal pain points. After determining the target user, we tried to find out their specific problems. We got to understand them through illustrating the pain points by immersing into user's life.

Approaching the design opportunities after finding out the pain points | I-Fridge

respondents would like to get food recommendation & health advice

Lack of professional advice

Daily recommendation of customized recipes Note: All the data comes from the questionnaire statistics.


Measuring weight

The storyboard shows the main functions of the service system, highlighting several important time points of our protagonist. Storyboard to illustrate the operating process | I-Fridge

In additon to the showing the functions, we lay emphasis on the fact that the fridge is connected to other equipments instead of being an individual in the service system.

Ambient Occlusion Rendering Realistic lighting details (Vray)

Material Rendering Basic picture (Vray)

Wutopia Lab is an Architectural Design Studio in Shanghai. I was a little worried and excited before the internship since I had never tried anything related to the architecture. So it was a challenge and an opportunity to learn something new. During the internship, I was arranged to do some architectural renderings. The architects there taught me some basic knowledge of Sketchup and Vray which offered great help.

How I worked | Wutopia Lab


I combined trees in watercolor and caricatured sky together and surprisingly found the style pretty special. Attempt 1 | Wutopia Lab


I used purple-blue colors and added some sakura in the picture to create an atmosphere with a style of Japanese anime. Attempt 2 | Wutopia Lab


I laid emphasis on the sunshine of dusk. And thanks to the figures of father and son, the atmosphere became somewhat cozy. Attempt 3 | Wutopia Lab


The low saturation colors and the clean materials create a fresh and natural feeling. Attempt 4 | Wutopia Lab


Tried distinct figures to reflect the different parts of the architecture. Attempt 5 | Wutopia Lab


I remember someone said that In the city, the buildings are architectures. And the buildings form the city. Inside the building, the furniture becomes architecture. And the furniture forms the interior.

Here I am ; )

While I understand that nothing is isolated. No man is an island. So is design.
