For my first product I designed I wanted to incorporate both simplicity and functionality into my design as much as possible. Even though we face pollution in our world today, in the coming future it will be even worse which means poorer and poorer air quality for us to breathe. The wrist watch is one of the most commonly worn accessories in todays market so I thought about how a watch could make a positive impact on our environment. Using perpetual motion from a spinning rotor inside the watch, air is sucked inside and filtered through with no power source necessary. The filtered air is then released automatically back into the atmosphere for the user to breathe. With this the user will both be able to filter and breathe cleaner air but also read on the face of the watch whether or not the air is safe to breathe or not.
For my second product idea I kind of struggled a bit but I thought about a chair that would be able to fold out into a usable ladder which could be used in libraries or book stores for both convenience and relaxation. The chair would be made out of light weight material such as fiberglass or wood.
