Did you ever accuse yourself for not knowing how to eat a burger?
Think again…The problem is not with you but the burger. The form has not been designed keeping in mind the human mouth. And so the burger has a problem with its usability. Did you ever make multiple attempts to find the right switch to your fan or light in your workspace or your house? The switch panels are designed more for aesthetic appeal than for ease of use. This holds true not only for a burger or a switch panel,but for many other products and services we use in day-to-day life. Is design all about aesthetics and visual appeal? Is technology making things complex? Where is the problem?
