In our first unit lesson, we discuss the importance of considering human variability in the design process. When designing products such as airplanes, which are used by global populations, variations in overall body size and shape provide a challenge for designers. Please discuss an instance when you felt a product was not designed to fit your personal body type. Share this product and how it failed to meet your needs. What recommendations do you have for the designer?
