Being relatively left brained, I used the concept scoring matrix to help narrow down my concepts for prototyping.

Using this any concepts scoring 3.00 or less were automatically discounted. I also chose to discount the disposable heat pack concept at this point due to a lack of knowledge surrounding the chemicals needed to create the heat packs safely.

Also moving forward, the time limit of this course (and my current schedule) means that full development of the electro-mechanical side of the self brew concept is not really feasible. I am however intrigued by the concept and will continue to work on this, in a simplified way, as part of the concept development of the other designs.
