Unfortunately, never managed to produce a prototype. Design originated from living patterns in low-income countries, which was re-configured in an original way. However, I got very good response from potential end users over the period of preparing the report - most came from people I met during my stay in NE Asia. Obviously, any further design twist should come straight from empathising with the end user, right?!
