Pencil Sharpener Clock sharpener By- Rupam Das 11020529

Brainstorming • We had done a session for finding out the key words which is associated with pencil sharpener. • Then we had to categorise these adjectives and key words into different list. • Those words were based on the functionality, look and various cues that we can relate to the pencil sharpener as a whole. • In those word we had to first analyse that on the context of pencil sharpener and then we had to associate it and write it and draw the outlook of the sharpener that we thought on the basis of that word.

Function Analysis • This product has been made in the perspective for making sharpening of pencil more fun than ever for the kids and students, who will be using pencil for their writing. • They can sharpen the pencil by just doing it in the normal way of rotating the pencil inside the whole where the blade is their or they can just rotate the lock arm and rotate it with their fingers which will make the pencil inside the hole get sharpened. • It can be used as a substitute to toy as it resembles the lock and key version. • The sharpener will be having a storage capacity where the waste of the pencil is gathered and disposed later.
