Why We Chose This
Pin One continues our mission of featuring products that were developed via crowdfunding—in this case, on Indiegogo and Kickstarter. It is different than other wearable technology designs: Instead of functioning as a tracking device that counts your steps or monitors behavior, the Pin One fosters creativity. It’s an accessory that encourages you to create, express yourself and share your designs with a community.
Function plays a large role in defining good design. When designers look at an object, they don't just consider its aesthetic appearance—they should also challenge it to be more versatile, to respond to the user's need, or to achieve its purpose more elegantly. Good design has the capacity to solve problems that sometimes we didn't even know we had. This is one of the ways design touches and enriches our everyday life.
