THE PROBLEMS AND OPPORTUNITIES
After collecting issues within existing wet-and-dry vacuums and interviewing with different users, we found that:
1. Attachments and hose storage are not durable and convenient enough.
2. Battery placement is not visible for users to reach.
3. Attachments and hose storage are not durable and convenient enough.
4.Latches do not secure the drum well enough and are not convenient to use.
Coming up with several concepts that aimed at solving these problems.
