Even though I designed the blueprint model myself I still cut corners, not following the flow charted model step by step, and charged off on a tangent all excited about a particular product that I was sure would “take off”. Not, so.
Anyway, I produced a number of these not-so-well-researched products which became outdated within three months of the market launch leaving me with boxes of obsolete stock. That’s the problem with designing products that cater for technology, at the time you think you have a wonder product that ticks all the boxes, but the market quickly moves on.
I placed the products into storage and… a few years later… I happened to find an alternative use for them with a new technology-based product that appeared on the market. Hey presto! My products, by a fortunate twist of fate, could house the new products perfectly as a modern-looking, secure and convenient storage container.
