Goal for our polymer project is to create a wearable product using polymers.
Target Market Audience
Parents with small kids
|Target Market Audience
||How will this help them?
|Target Market Audience #1:
||Athletes/Sports that use shoes and gets easily damaged.
||The polymer design is not sticky and is stretchable/feasible for people to use when they have damaged products such as shoes.
|Possible Target Market Audience #2:
*just in case you have more than one target market audience
|Little kids that often likes to go outside.
||The polymer design can fix several parts of the shoe that makes little kids get more free and go outside very often.
Describing Our Polymer:
We want the physical properties to include:
-Stretchability (can stretch wide and long, can shrink short and narrow)
-Not adhesive and sticky (if too sticky, the consequence will be hard to wear and not feasible)
-Smooth (shouldn’t damage one’s part)
-Soft/Tender surface (more comfortable when worn)
Polymer Characteristics We Are Looking For
*Gloop, Super Slime, Stretch-tastic Slime, Oobleck
||Why this is important
||-Stretchability (can easily stretch and return to its normal position afterwards)
-Sticky (sticks to a certain object when touched)
|This is important, because as a goal and a wearable shoe product, it needs to have a characteristic of stretchability. Its ability to stretch and return to its normal position is very effective.
||-Stretchability (easily destroyed and broken into two parts when stretched)
-Not sticky (it can feel like its sticky but does not stick on a certain object when touched)
|This is important because when its not sticky, it is very useful for the feasability and the preferability for people can be substantially high.
||-Stretchability (too easily stretched and broken down)
-A little sticky (it sticks and breaks off afterwards)
|This is important, because although it doesn’t match the product and the physical properties, it shows a proof and evidence of what kind of sources cannot fit into the object.
Developing our plan:
First, we will try to gather as many polymer experiments that can be helpful for our product that we are trying to sell. For example, there are several ingredients such as PVA solution, Glue, Borax, etc. With these materials with quantitative and qualitative datas, we are going to try to mix various things together to create the best design.
Second, we will need to gather data and try to sort out the main characteristics of each design and prototypes that we made. This way, we can figure out what sources are useful and what not.
Third, we will try to make the best design selected, and make it into various sizes that can fit into various things. The topic is to create a design that is wearable which means that there needs to be several of the final designs to make the polymers fit in the wearable products.
Finally, we will take pictures of our process and make several videos to put it all together into one to tell our final products. We will try to identify the techniques that make a selling video more interesting and persuasive to buy.
