    5 Objects

    Glo Pillow

    Formal

    The Glo Pillow has a pillowcase, Netting, Flame Retardent, LED Fabric Substrate, and Memory foam. It is recharged by being plugged into the wall. It looks like your average pillow with a black control center for setting the alarm on the side of the pillow.

    Functional

    It functions to wake one up via its lighting and not sound. Does it work for someone who doesn’t use a pillow, or what if someone is extremely hungover, or just a plain heavy sleeper?

    Ethical

    Its social factor is for peoples health and I would say it’s a positive outlook and ethic to accomplish that. It uses a few different materials to pursue its objective

    Cost

    Its not on the market yet so I have no idea how much it would cost, but it most likely will be produced for the average citizen to buy as more of a luxury.

    Razor ProModel

    Formal

    Made from aircraft grade aluminium, the pro-model is durable up to 220 pounds. Its design is minimal, yet very functional, Its an aluminium finish, with rubber grip handles and a funky label on the board where one stands the wheels are urethane and ball bearing

    Functional

    Telescoping handlebar, collapsible design makes it easy to fold up and take on the go. its weight is 8 ponds making it easy to carry around. I question its safety, although i see people using it but many wouldn’t be able to if they aren’t athletic, or have a hard time manoeuvring it

    Ethical

    Its social impact is to me another way of spreading alternative transportation, some of its uses are for fun and not transportation modes. Most commuters wouldn’t use this when dressed in a business suit, but it could be an alternative to the skateboard

    Cost

    60 dollars, its a steal

    Splat Dish Rack

    Formal

    Its form is interesting, made from a single sheet of plastic and pops up for drying dishes, yet folds flat for storing away.

    Functional

    I question its use of function. it only has space for dishes, not flatware.

    Ethical

    Its another piece of plastic, how good can that be?

    Cost

    Not on the market but its price cant be that much, its a piece of plastic

    Semi Circular Headphones

    Formal

    The form of this object is very pleasing to the eye with its clean design, neon colors, and consistency of shape with its given name "semi circular" Its made from plastic

    Functional

    Its function is to serve as a "poor Headphone" reason is because its to give bicyclists music for the road in a safe way that allows them to hear the road too, not filter it out like most headphones

    Ethical

    Very ethical to promote the luxury of music in a safe way to peole trying alternative methods of transportation

    Cost

    Its cost should be affordable to the average citizen. Being that it’s to promote alternative transportation, so money saved on transportation can be spent on this product. Its Bluetooth capability is the only part that most likely makes it "more" expensive

    DIY Hoop Harness for Blind Dogs

    Formal

    Its form consists of a leather harness and aluminium guard. It is not pleasing to the eye.

    Functional

    It serves part of its function by protecting the dog from bumping into things it cannot see, but protruding things may be able to get around the guard itself.

    Ethical

    Its impact on waste is not a lot, a little aluminium, a little leather, doesn’t leave a big eco footprint, especially because there is no factory producing this, it is a DIY project for those coping with a blind dog. on the other hand it benefits the dog very much

    Cost

    I can see this product costing no more than 20 dollars (not including tools like a rivet gun, grinder/file) and maybe 2 hours of work
