Rethinking the design of the watering can to make it more inclusive to the elderly user.

Project Description

After interviews with 4 elderly users, watering cans were found to be a common source of physical stress and mental frustration. A journey map was generated based on user input and found that the carrying of the watering can was the most uncomfortable aspect - a clear opportunity for improvement. Based on iterative prototyping informed by user feedback, the Easy-Can proposes a unique solution to this issue by allowing the user to pull the can along with them.
