Paper prototypes

Ten tiny paper models of vending machine shapes for the bathroom. Built to emphasize privacy and function in tight spaces. Wall-mounted design continues in the tradition of bathroom vending machines we see today. Interface will include grab-and-go literature, card swipe for credit cards or student IDs, and glass front to see products or touch-screen to select and vend.

During research sessions, women stressed the need for privacy when purchasing any female health product. My advisor, Suguru Ishizaki, also suggested mixing in innocuous products, such as candy or perfume, with the health products to help women self-camoflaugue when buying something possibly controversial. Previous machine shapes, such as those designed by IDEO and Frog, use side angles to help protect user privacy during transactions.
