Design for durability

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Circular Design Strategies, Product Durability

Race cars are virtually made, when a game is happening a new car is made with the best proporties for that track.

When you buy a hockeystick, you buy the one that ‘feels’ best. Probably a lot of sticks are not the best for you personal experience. Sensors could help tracking movements with a hockeystick and with that information advise a hockey stick. This is already done with tennis rackets. This sensor is named Zepp.
