Locks Securely

By taking imprints of peoples hands I was able to identify how one may go about holding something and if there was any difference between men and women. 

I also made sketch mock-ups of handles to identify which handle type is most comfortable to hold.

Many different products are on the market regarding camping lighting, though each of them have their own pros and cons. The main failures I found throughout the models were a lack of hanging mechanisms and needing to buy a lantern for each person on the trip. 

STACKABLE LANTERN

You’re camping, and you need to use the loo... but their is only one light source. Do you leave your friends in the eerie darkness, or do you stumble over a couple of few unseen branches on the way to the loo? With the stackable lantern you will never run into this dilemma again! The stackable lantern features magnets that snap each lantern on top of one another. It can be used as one large light source while telling ghost stories, or four separate when taking a walk.

Stackable Lantern is a necessity when camping!
