Task 4: Design Excellence
Item: Eton Soulra
The Soulra by eton (who are famous for making radios) is a pretty cool product. An iPhone/Pod docking station, which is solar powered and weather proof. Technically is not the best product as the charged battery only last 4 hours while playiing music and chargin your ipod, while takes 10hours to fully charge via the sun (also comes with 240v charger). Retailing at $199 its pretty good valve.
I took more of a sales pitch in my design analysis poster. Working in retail 'selling the sizzle' is basically pointing out a feature and making it sound good so YOU can picture yourself owning it, so I went with that. I wanted to set myself aprart from the standard response to the task with this. I do like my end result.
