Cool Design Idea

Found this wonderful post in the BBC RSS feed today. An observant graduate student has crafted a new swimmer's goggle that will keep track of the lap count and time.

Ms Williams said the idea for the Inview goggles came out of her past experiences as a lifeguard at her local swimming pool.

Many keen swimmers rely on a wristwatch or wall-mounted pace clock to keep track of lap times but both change the way that people swim.

"If they have a watch on a lot of swimmers will move their left arm differently, just to see how fast they are going," she said. "It's wasting energy for them really."

Observation... the starting point for design.

Recognizing that there was an opportunity, then thinking about how to resolve it.

Nice work, Katie!
