Motion Computing is a global leader in integrated mobile technologies focused on making products for a range of vertical markets. Creating products with memorable user experiences has always been crucial to their business. When developing a new device for customers in the healthcare and field service industries, Motion Computing asked Pushstart to design not just a tablet but also a cohesive accessories ecosystem.
As with any rugged tablet, durability and portability were paramount. We investigated new materials and manufacturing techniques to help make the product more resilient. Then we looked for solutions to convey those qualities through the design language. The product also needed to be easily adaptable to the operating environment. To achieve this, we looked at ways of better integrating accessories like covers, handles, and straps.
In addition to addressing the needs of the end user, we also looked for design solutions that would serve to simplify Motion Computing’s engineering and manufacturing efforts. We explored a number of options that leveraged a single replicator block across several devices, maximizing offerings without straining company resources.
