Monday Night Owls - 6 November 2017 - Useless design features
We read an article about some useless design features in modern products - things which once were there for a reason, but the reason no longer exists:
Vocabulary Top 10:
rivet - a special kind of metal bolt or pin that is used to hold pieces of metal together
whim - a sudden wish, desire, decision, etc.
adorn - to make (someone or something) more attractive by adding something beautiful; decorate
traces - something (such as a mark or an object) which shows that someone or something was in a particular place; a very small amount of something
futuristic - very modern
on the cusp - at the point when something is about to change to something else
mimesis - imitation; mimicry
versatile - able to do many different things; having many different uses
painstakingly - showing or done with great care and effort
copycat - something that is very similar to another thing; a person who does the same thing as someone else e.g. a person who adopts the behavior, style, etc., of someone else
Were you surprised by any of the design features they mentioned? Which one, and why?
Can you think of any other items that also have useless design features because of the past?
