A new hand tool
Hi there gardeners,
I am a 2nd year product design student.
We have been given a project, sponsored by Bosch, to create a new hand-held, cordless gardening tool. This product could be picked by Bosch and could possibly benefit your garden if I manage to find a gap in the market. The tool can be either battery operated or mechanically driven. The tool can be used for either outdoor or indoor gardening. I have visited a few garden centres to speak to individual gardeners about problems in which they face in the garden whether it be joint issues or simply flaws in the current tools they have. I have found some answers but no hard ground in which I could develop a product from.
I was wondering whether you have faced any problems in the garden recently? Any issues with usability of tools or lack of tools on the market would help me out so much.
