More and more interactive products are being returned. In 2002, 48% of all returned products were technically fully functional but were rejected for failing to satisfy user needs (28%) or purely due to users’ remorse (20%). Even though a product may have all the features one can hope for, complexity and bad user experience can prevent users from integrating it into their lives.User experiences are subjective and dynamic, but by and large, interactive products are not designed to take people’s changing capacity and experience into account. But they could.
I’m not a cash type of person, I use my card for almost everything and so I can’t reward top service with a tip, until now. Dipjar is a new project designed to take the convenience of cards and combine it with the courtesy of tipping. It’s as simple as a cash tip jar but with the technology to accept and pass along tips left with credit and debit cards.
Heres how it works, once in hand, companies plug the DipJar into a power outlet to start accepting tips. Once the DipJar is on the countertop, customers can start dipping their cards into Dipjar and the system does the rest.
Using classic European delivery bikes as inspiration, the Faraday combines innovative technologies to create a revolutionary bicycle. In passing, the Faraday might just seem like an ordinary bike with a hint of style, but housed within the frame is a battery and motor to assist in your commute. With a 45-minute charge time and 15 miles of pedal assist, the Faraday adds some pep into your pedaling.
The Faraday team tell us a bit more about the bike:
“At Faraday Bicycles, design is about much more than just appearance – it’s about the entire rider experience. Despite its extraordinary capabilities (it’s electric!), we designed the Faraday Porteur to look and ride just like a familiar, high-quality bicycle. The Faraday Porteur looks and feels like a premium city bike, but it performs in a class of its own. Most importantly, the Faraday lets you work as much, or as little, as you want.”
