           尽管可伸缩引线是狗主人的基本配件,但它仍然存在严重的缺陷,阻碍了狗主人和他们的四条腿朋友的安全。Amble和它的一系列安全寻址特性为这些问题提供了一个解决方案,同时还提供了一种提升传统产品外观的形式。
            Amble通过鼓励用户更多地参与进来,并意识到他们的狗的位置,从而提高了安全性;改进后的刹车系统与传统的刹车系统的工作方式相反,当按压扳机时,刹车会松开,并迫使主人意识到狗在哪里行驶。磁带本身也发挥着重要的作用,增加安全,通过视觉指标的引脚条纹,以及声音反馈,因为它通过“点击器”。这一切,以及更多,都被安置在一个紧凑和复杂的形式,肯定会吸引路人的注意。
           从最初的缩略图草图开始,一直到深入的开发,最终看到Amble的最终形式。这是通过草图建模和快速原型的组合完成的。从纸板模型开始,逐步发展到更精细的1:1比例模型,人体工程学不断进行测试,以确保用户在使用设备时获得舒适的体验。
          3D打印允许快速创建设备的多次迭代。位于磁带出口点之前的点击器机制提供了关于引线运动的可听反馈。有人认为,可扩展引线提供了一定程度的失控,这往往是由于用户不理解或意识不到狗已经离开他们的距离。这种胶带的特点是可以折叠,当它通过点击器时,用户可以感觉到狗的运动。磁带被分成了三个不同的部分,可以通过它们的彩色别针条纹来识别。内部组件经过精心配置,可以有效地使用空间。
           Amble没有像传统的引线那样按下触发器来设置刹车,而是使用了一个经过修改的触发器,当按下时就会释放刹车。这吸引了用户,让他们意识到他们的狗已经走了多远。单击机制可以使用设备外观上的唯一按钮打开/关闭。随着用户信心的增长,这可能是需要的。微妙的表面细节向用户显示手的位置,同时创建一个触觉表面。单色的配色方案,导致一个复杂的和立即识别的产品,自信地从竞争对手脱颖而出。这与它独特的形式相结合,确保产品将吸引路人的注意。

Despite being a fundamental accessory for dog-owners, the extendable lead still carries significant flaws that impede on the safety of both the dog owner and their four-legged friend. Amble and its series of safety-addressing features offer a solution to these issues, whilst also carrying a form that elevates the appearance of what is conventionally a rather mundane product.Amble increases safety by encouraging the user to be more engaged and aware of the location of their dog; a revised braking system operates in the opposite way to a conventional lead, as squeezing the trigger releases the break and forces the owner to be aware of where the dog is traveling. The tape itself also plays a significant role in increasing safety, through both the visual indicators of the pin striping, and the audible feedback as it passes through the ‘clicker’.This, and more, is all housed within a compact and sophisticated form that is sure to grab the attention of passers-by.Designer: James Hoare & Calum Marriott-ManningThe ideation process led to a substantial amount of sketches being created. Starting from initial thumbnail sketches and continuing through to in-depth development eventually saw Amble’s final form coming together. This was finalized through a combination of sketch modeling and rapid prototyping.Starting from cardboard mock-ups and progressing through to more refined, 1:1 scale models, the ergonomics were continuously tested to ensure for a comfortable user- experience when using the device. 3D printing allowed for multiple iterations of the device to be created rapidly.The Clicker mechanism, housed just before the tape exit point, provides audible-feedback on the leads movement; it is argued that extendable leads offer a degree of lack-of-control that is often caused by the user not understanding or realizing the distance that the dog has traveled away from them. The tape features folds which, when passed through the Clicker, make the user aware of the dog’s movement.The tape has been split into three distinct sections that are identifiable by their colored pin-stripes. A bungee section is present at the end of the reel. Unlike traditional bungee leads, which can never offer a complete stop as the dog is still able to stretch the elastic, Amble allows for a harsh stop when braking, but a soft stop when the lead is fully extended, minimizing the risk of injury to both the owner and the dog.The inner components have been carefully configured to use the space efficiently. The image above shows the Auto-Brake System; rather than pressing the trigger to set the brake, which is the case with traditional leads, Amble uses a revised trigger that releases the brake when pressed. This engages the user and makes them aware of how far their dog has traveled.The clicking mechanism can be turned on/off using the only button on the facade of the device. This may be desirable as the user grows in confidence.The subtle surface detailing indicates the hand position to the user, whilst creating a tactile surface.The monochromatic color scheme leads to a sophisticated and instantly recognizable product that confidently stands out from its competitors. This, paired with its unique form, ensures for a product that will grab the attention of passers-by.
