SCAMPER can help us make new designs as you can substitute part of a product to create new designs to change the functions and appearance of design. You can combine parts to make new designs and change the functions and appearance of an object. E.g. fan combined with radio. In SCAMPER, you can use unique features of other products to create an entirely different device with different functions and appearance. Modifying products can also create different products. You can also eliminate some parts of a product to make a different thing altogether.

Design Appreciation

 These 2 products are good because the showerhead is very convenient as it has a brush to scrub your body or the toilet.
The bladeless fan is good too as it is as good as a normal fan and it is safe as you won't cut your hand if you put your hand in the middle.

 The gold mouse and the showerhead are bad products as the gold mouse is not ergonomic and the showerhead is bad as you don't need the water to be "Scalding".
