IDEO - Beyond the Bag ChallengeGo to case study
While I migrate my old portfolio to this one, please see full project hereSee project
For this design challenge, I was asked to join a team who had come up with the "BagBank" idea, and to make it come to life through 3D modeling. BagBank is a plastic bag recycling system concept that consists of a compact bag withdrawal/return station deployed at every checkout counter and a specially-designed app for customers. BagBank machine is designed to streamline the staff work flow at the checkout counter. The BagBank machine is well designed to host as many as 200 bags/machine, that way, the labor of changing bags is reduced and the inside bag host module which can be easily replaced. Inside the BagBank has a folding system and sensor to organize and clean returned bags to designated areas. That automation eliminates the labor to handle the return bag back to the recycling system.
