A head-mounted barcode scanner designed for the Japanese Market. 
Intended for industrial workplaces, the idea was clear, the ability to enable hand-free tasking brings with it improved productivity and task accuracy. 


The challenge was to help Denso create their first head-mounted product, which brought many new fit and comfort challenges. We helped Denso ensure excellent comfort for hours of fatigue-free use in the field, utilizing 3D head scan data and analysis of existing head-mounted products to arrive at a perfect fit/feel solution.
 

The result was a  product that seamlessly adapts from head-mounted to handheld. We ensured the user experience was seamless and intuitive, working through various mechanical options for attachment and adjustment.

 

The final deliverable was CAD data for the in house engineering teams to build out for manufacture.

Designed in collaboration with Denso.


“Max has always made these products very fine and innovative. He has a remarkable ability in styling geometry and business fitting. I am very pleased to work with him”
