Expert feedback, stage 1

It is a bold suggestion that we expand our appliances to appeal especially pet owners and it would be interesting to hear more about how this thinking could be expanded and broadened perhaps also to other design solutions. Also, we would like to hear more about the consumer, pet and product interaction and how that can effect the design expression.

Did you think about pets?

Imagine the following scene: you arrive at home, open the door and suddenly you see your room full of your pet’s food, spread all over corners of your house. Or even a worse scene: you arrive it and see your in pieces. What pass in your mind at this moment? Did your pet was hungry and you forgotten to feed it? Or do you think about how to clean up the mess? This is a common problem for pet owners in places around the world.
But what if would exist an appliance that could control your pet’s feeding in the same time that would avoid all your effort to clean up the mess that they do with the food? What if could we have this kind of product in a trust brand of appliances?
This is my propose in the contest, expand the theme! Home cleaning is not associated only to dust, grease or dirt. It’s about all the factors related to the well-being of those who live in a house.
We are used to the same appliances ever. Stoves, freezers, washing machines… The trend is to looking for other technologies that meet ours daily problems. So, why not extend this oportunities to other kind of consumers: the pets’ owners?
