Emotionally Connecting Gardening with Exercising
Trim is part of a new gardening tool range that allows users to make an emotional connection between gardening and exercising. Emotionally linking exercise with gardening would reduce social obsolescence and encourage users to garden with hand tools instead of electrical tools. Trim consists of a digital display that monitors and records the amount of calories the user burns, giving them satisfaction and a sense of achievement when maintaining their garden.
Trim’s Novel Features
Trim consists of a digital display that continually provides feedback indicating the amount of energy used when gardening. This would encourage users to garden with hand tools instead of electrical tools as they would know exactly how much exercise they were doing during gardening. Trim would ensure users would keep ‘trim’ and healthy whilst reducing the amount of electrical energy that would have otherwise been used by power tools.
Trim keeps a record of the users total amount of energy used during each task and the time taken to achieve it, therefore allowing the user to set their own personal exercising goals. Trim monitors and records the amount of calories the user burns giving them satisfaction and a sense of achievement as they maintain their garden. This feature would encourage users to look after their tool before it becomes unusable and disposed off.
Trim contains a built in radio that allows users to listen to music while they carry out their gardening task. Music fills a void when pursing mindless activities and would motivate users. Trim radio provides a portable compacted solution that has high quality sound because it travels around with the user.This feature would also eliminate the hassle of getting out an extension lead for a non portable radio.
