What will you share with your users to interact with?
For each feature that you're testing, how will you use your prototypes?
- Easy to use - our prototype will depict sketches depicting the user experience; from the product sketch, how the product will be attached to the water appliances, to how the user will receive feedback via their devices.
- Fun monetary rewards - our prototype will demonstrate the monetary reward through our UI sketch on the user's personal devices.
- Waterproof - we plan to use our drawing sketch and 3D sketch to show that it is waterproof.
- Affordable pricing - once our testers understand how the prototype works, we will interview them and ask for an estimate on how much they are willing to spend on the product.

Group 1 (Oaklyn)
- Something for a showerhead
- alerts when you use too much water
- looks too chunky for a sink but can use for a showerhead
- pipe under sink
- shes guessing it picks up on the vibration and alerts you when it exceeds
- logo with hand and logo very aesthetic she likes
- tells u how much water you used and how much money you saved. how does it know how much money you've saved is it comparing how much u used last week and now
- she likes the design, simple nice streamlined. everything makes sense
- nice colour scheme
- pretty simple design that seems that it is easy
- display that it can be on pipes for aesthetic concerns
- they would use it on her showers. not sure if they would put it anywhere else. not sure if they have the time to sync and get all of them and not sure if she would get anymore bcs she uses the most there
- intimidating - the product design looks chunky. doesn't look cute. suggest making it smaller or smoother. but functionality-wise it does what she wants it to do
- since it's a simple design expect it to be cheap - lower range $30 for one. for multiple, she would want it to be even cheaper
- suggestion - an animal shape hanging on the pipe. parents would buy that straightaway. ex: my kid likes koalas and they can hang on the showerhead
Group 2 (Anna)
- sensing the water flow using the clamps.
- asks if it goes inside the pipe.
- saving money using the product (on bills etc.)
- looking to pay around $20 for the product, have a free app (code comes with the product to activate)
- animal shapes, rounded and/or matches the aesthetic of the sinks or showerhead.
Group 3 (Saagar)
- looks like it tracks the water usage
- mentioned the tech
- clips onto the tap/showerhead
- asked about how it works measuring the water flow.
- asks about the using electronics and the sustainability surrounding the usage of that - look into this more
- recycled electronic stuff
- asked about the battery - rechargeable vs try for another type of battery
- like the visuals of the app - talked through it well - was confused by the "set timer" function
- perhaps not have the money saved built into the app - costs are different global
- no more than $30-$50 for the product
(another note: can be added or deleted later)
- for stopping water, restricting water use
- clamp to the pipe because can measure water flow
- it is able to get inside pipe to cut water
- you can safe money
- make sure more water more reward from that
- 20 dollar
- buy the product and get free app, app works on the product with code
- looks pretty small, not intrusive, pretty square, more ergonomic if it is rounded.
- looks like animal really cool and can match the pipe colour
- tracks the amount of water you use in different sink or shower
- it uses Bluetooth, and techs to calculate it all
- it looks like it just clips on
- rechargeable battery.
- the app can track the water usage, track everything else
- money saved in the app
- display more on the money saved
