 Ice creams are well-loved from around the world, and it's to make that job easier.

Cold,Sweet,and messy

Objective: To improve the ice cream eating experience.

Trouble at HAND

What is the problem?

   As much as ice creams provides cold pleasure, it also means it has to be stored frozen cold.

Once it's frozen solid, people will have to dig it up with force or let it melt. Either way,

it takes time and energy. For people who eat ice cream more often like women and children,

their lack of both strength and patience will cool down the fun very fast.

RESEARCH

Collecting data

   By doing massive research, it is possible to gather a shallow, wide data which helps to

identify the overall frame.

OBSERVATION

How different people scoop.

  By observing each individuals, you can find out about their gestures, movement, and eventually see where the problem is.

IDEATION

Narrowing it down through sketching

 Finding that one simple slope.

CONCEPT EXPLORATION

How different people from different backgrounds scoop it.

 After multiple explorations and discussions, it was narrowed into few ideas.

NARROWING DOWN

How different people from different backgrounds scoop it.

 After finding the shape, it was time to apply mechanics and physics to see if it will work.
