|Figure 1. Some brainstorming drawings.|
- An automatic pet feeder
- This option was dismissed due to its simplicity, since the team desired a challenge.
- A cordless hair dryer
- This option was dismissed due to its complexity (as none of the team members are familiar enough with mechanical and electrical parts to be able to reasonably tackle this project).
- An ice-cube maker that delivers 1-2 extra cold, extra clear ice cubes every fifteen minutes
- This option was also dismissed due to its complexity.
- An automatic plant watering system
- The team chose this option, which appeared to be the one most suited to all individual members, being both a challenge and a reasonable possibility.
