Our clients often present us with new ideas and concepts based on emerging technologies and market needs. This hand scanner is one example of a device which evolved from a technology based on infrared venal pattern recognition developed for the medical industry. Our assignment was to develop an appropriate design for a hand scanner which would be ergonomically optimized, easy to use, reliable, attractive, and designed for either tabletop or a wall mount.
Hundreds of concept sketches were developed to explore different design options based on the technology and its intended application. A select group of these was further explored and presented as photo real renditions to our client for their input. Finally, a selected concept was then completely developed into a fully functional product as shown in this mini-presentation.
