In this project students will be using 3D scanning technology to transform off-the-shelf products into ergonomic solutions. The process involves following a tutorial to learn how to design an ergonomic mouse grip using 3D scan data of a clay model. This is followed by a creative journey where students select a product, identify an end user and perform a detailed product analysis before using their insights to design an object that attaches to the chosen product - transforming it to serve the needs and wants of the chosen end user.
