PowaBand is developing wearable tech for young people that converts activity into points that can be redeemed in computer games for cool unlocks. Their main goal is to improve a childs health by encouraging them to get outside and play.
A few months ago we worked with them to develop a design which was used to gain investment and show people what the PowaBand could look like. Our work helped them gain investment and they asked us back to re-design the product based upon their user research. This time we were able to create designs for a fully working band that is now currently in the prototyping phase.
We love sketching and it is still by far the best way to concept and iterate the design of almost anything! This combined with 3D printing means designs can be developed incredibly quickly whilst still giving freedom for creativity. Above is Nick our Product Designer working away.
