When Waterloo Industries wanted to reinvent power tool storage for the Do-It-Yourself craftsman, the company hired a five-person, multidisciplinary team that conducted 32 in-home interviews in three states. The result of the research-Tooldock-is a modular, mobile, multi-functional system of workstations that increase enjoyment and productivity. Tabletop tools can be stored in cabinets and replaced with others on stands.
- The immediate feedback allowed designers to get to new ideas into the designs faster.
