神奇量杯遙距望刻度無煩惱 – How does it work?

April 27, 2011

  有無試過用量杯時,往往需要蹲下去或者把量杯拿到眼前,才能準確量度分量。試想,要是你不能蹲下,或不夠力拿起載滿液體的量杯,每次用量杯都會相當艱辛苦。美國就有一個設計師,眼見年老的妻子每次下廚時都很辛苦,心痛之餘亦靈機一觸,發明了一個好醒目的和合設計──不用蹲下,不用拿起量杯,即使站着向下望也可以準確量度液體分量。

  好神奇,是嗎?其實只要從用家角度出發,你會發現,將杯身刻度打斜,就可以令人從杯上望下去都可以知道刻度。

  推出這款量杯的公司總裁 Alex Lee 在一個名叫Gel (Good Experience Life Conference) Conference上講解如何設計人人friendly的產品。大家可以看看短片偷師!(短片網址:http://vimeo.com/3200945

  Have you ever had this experience?  When you use a measuring cup, you somehow have to kneel down or bring the cup to your eyes to see clearly what’s inside.  What if you have difficulty bending down or carrying a whole cup of stuff, wouldn’t using the measuring cup a frustrating experience?  In the US, a designer came up of an idea when he saw his wife having a hard time handling this kitchen gadget.  He realized that with an inclined measuring rule, anyone can see how much the cup holds from above.

  Alex Lee, the CEO of the company which produces this kind of measuring cups spoke at the Gel Conference.  Now you can view the clip at http://vimeo.com/3200945 and learn how to develop a designer mindset to make our lives better.
