The product can also be used for refresher demonstrations before water activities take place. As it is compact it can be packed away when not needed or transported by an instructor.
How is Sustainable Energy being Integrated into Product Design?
After gaining inspiration from her placement year at Taylor Construction Plant. Jemma's dissertation looked at types of sustainable energies used around the world. It included examples of where these energies have been integrated and examples of products which have utilised sustainable energy in their design. The challenges and opportunities faced by designers and users were also investigated. As well as new environmentally friendly thinking which is still being researched.
