DESIGN PROBLEM - MEDIA STORAGE

V. Ryan 2007

 

SAMPLE DESIGN PROBLEM: When my dad gets home in the evening he is extremely tired and likes to watch DVDs from his favourite chair. He has so many that often they are left out on the floor and tables. He stores them on the coffee table but there are so many that some fall on the floor and are left lying there. This is dangerous as it is easy to trip over them.
My dad always finds it difficult to find the one he wants to watch. This is because they are not stored in any particular order and some have been lost.
My dad also likes to listen to 1960s music. He has many CDs but he has the same storage problem.
