User Feedback and Further Development
A key learning from Project SmartMug was the importance of scoping the project in order to achieve the minimum viable product as easily & quickly as possible. This was also an important project for me as I not only designed the product but also coded the mug behavior which was both new and difficult. In addition to coding, I also had to understand basic principles of thermodynamics and electrical engineering in order to make my defined product concept a reality. Through this process, I also acquired skills to create a testable mockup even when not all the technical aspects have been figured out in order to get quick user feedback.
