This is a running armband for cell phones. When people go running, they bring their cell phones along for contacts, listening to music, setting timer etc. However, how does one take care of his or her cell phone when their hands are normally jiggling when running?  Plus, usually there are not pockets in running shorts and pants. Then there is the existence of running armbands for cell phones.

This is a good design as this product designed to tackle the aforementioned concern faced by people who go for running. This is an adjustable armband that allows people to adjust according to their comfort on their arm when they wear it. They can manually fasten how tightly they want. This is made to hold the cell phone in place in the armband when the arms are jiggling during a run. The chances are that the cell phone is normally stayed put in the armband, allowing the runners to be at ease.

This is fairly safe to use as the attachment is strong so as to hold the cell phone to hold in place. In light of human factor, this design is created to optimize the users’ ability to accomplish their tasks error-free and accept the system as a useful tool (Human Factors and Ergonomics Society, n.d.).

Car Phone Holder

This is a car phone holder that is specially designed for drivers’ convenience. We all know that drivers are not supposed to get a hold of phone when they are driving, but, the question is, what if they need global positioning system (GPS) in order to reach their desired destination?

In my opinion, this is a well-designed object for the sake of drivers’ convenience as well as their safety. Drivers can secure the phone holder by adhering it to the car’s windshield which is appropriate to them. Now they can conveniently place their mobile phone in the holder when they need to use GPS while they are on the road. Not only are their hands freed from being occupied by holding phone while driving, they are also freed from having to juggle between holding onto the steering wheel and holding phone at the same time that is critically dangerous. This sparks the human factors engineering which is the discipline that is to be achieved by identifying and addressing the aforementioned issues (PSNet, 2016).
