|Study the computer games storage unit shown below.
|1. On the photograph, label each piece of equipment and interesting features.
|2. Describe an interesting feature you labelled on the diagram. Explain why you find the feature interesting.
|FEATURE: CHARGING STATION
|Integrating a charging station for a phone / MP3 player is a good idea. This means that small devices can be charged in one place and they are stored securely. Multiple devices can be charged at the same time, with the leads for each device arranged neatly in one area. This offers additional functionality to the storage unit.
|3. Identify one weakness with the storage unit. Then, explain how you could improve the design to ensure that the weakness no longer exists. Use notes and sketches.
|I consider the thin steel legs to be a weak point of the design. The legs look weak and too flexible and will allow the storage unit top to move from side to side, when pressure is applied (e.g. the user leaning on the unit top). An improvement would be to add strengthening pieces / rails. The additional strength would stop movement of the unit top.
