During the week I saw this video on YouTube and I feel it relates well to the project we are doing at the minute for Noel Joyce. The project being to find a problem/bad user experience in every day life and develop a solution that will solve this problem whilst creating an enjoyable user experience. Initial cranberries used to be hand picked which was a time consuming and costly process. However a solution to this problem was derived and can be seen clearly in this video. The fields are now flooded and the berries are mechanically removed from the plants. As the berries are removed the float to the top off the water. This results in the collection of the berries being sped up exponentially whilst also creating a more user friendly harvest .

This video also has some class video footage check it out.
