Idea 1: Bored Can Kill.

Details

Target audience: Everyone.

Concept: For this idea I want to find a way to killing time. I got the idea from my personal experience. It's quite embracing to say, because when I make a bowel movement (With no mobile phone or any electronic devices on me) I always want to find some thing to read, for example, texts on shampoo container, in order to kill the time. (Not sure everyone does that).

Idea 2: Change Behaviour

Details

Target audience: People who have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

Concept: The idea is to create a product that can change people's behaviour. It's hard to change behaviour, because people get used to their habits and their ways of actions. For this idea I want to use people's compulsive feeling to change their bad habit or improve some good habit.

I think this packaging is great, and it's cylinder shaped which is suitable for my glass cup. I would make a cylinder shaped frame to contain the glass cups and screen print the text and patterns on the frame.

How much water do we need?

Details

Every day you lose water through your breath, perspiration, urine and bowel movements. For your body to function properly, you must replenish its water supply by consuming beverages and foods that contain water.

So how much fluid does the average, healthy adult living in a temperate climate need? The Institute of Medicine determined that an adequate intake for men is roughly about 13 cups (3 liters) of total beverages a day. The adequate intake for women is about 9 cups (2.2 liters) of total beverages a day.

Details

Drink 8 glasses a day?

Details

Everyone has heard the advice, "Drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day." That's about 1.9 liters, which isn't that different from the Institute of Medicine recommendations. Although the "8 by 8" rule isn't supported by hard evidence, it remains popular because it's easy to remember. Just keep in mind that the rule should be reframed as: "Drink eight 8-ounce glasses of fluid a day," because all fluids count toward the daily total.

1 ounce = 0.0295735296 litres

0.0295735296 x 8 x 8 = 1.89 litres

The total fluid intake depending on how active you are, the climate you live in, your health status, and if you're pregnant or breast-feeding.

Library Research

Details

In the library I looked at different types of packaging. I considered function, protection, and appearance.

I had an idea based on this packaging, which is about to create a frame out of hard materials such as cardboard, wood and rubber to protect the inner packaging.
