Indvidual Project
Duration: 4 Weeks
CURRENT MARKET
IDEATION
Key considerations for the watering can are:
Length of Spout(s), Location of Handle, and Size
ERGONOMICS AND MEASURMENTS
Posture is different when watering plants that sit on the ground versus watering plants in hanging pots. Also, if the balance is not right, users have to put a significant amount of pressure on the arm to carry the watering can while it’s full.

USE CYCLE
SEGMENTATION MODEL
The watering can has two spouts; a long spout and a short spout. The long side is used to water the plants that are on the ground, and the short side is used to water plants that are in the hanging pot. The side with the shorter spout can fit the kitchen sink to fill the watering can with water. This design contains multiple handles, one for carrying and the others for watering using two different spouts. There is no right or wrong way to use each handle; it is up to users to decide which handle is most comfortable for their tasks.
