Designers must consider how people will interact with their products and systems. The use of ergonomics and anthropometric data allows them to make sure their products are comfortable and efficient to use.
This resource focusses on how ergonomics and anthropometric data can be used to design a product.
Magnetism is a key scientific phenomenon. Utilising this has allowed designers to create new and innovative products, such as fully working MAGLEV trains and hoverboards.
This resource focusses on designing a hoverboard that works using magnetism and magnetic field.
