TechToo 2 in 1 Tablet Keyboard ⋅ Toy
The TechToo 2 in 1 is a tablet for 2 years old children. The tablet element can be used as a standalone device or in combination with the keyboard in order to access a larger set of educative games.
The product teaches the kid about shape, colors, numbers, letters and daily adult activities such as email, calendar and clock for example.
The brief here was to design a toy that would fit in the Tech-Too range and referred to an hybrid tablet such as the Windows, Asus or Samsung Tablets. Those elements were already giving us important constraints regarding the technical/mechanical that would be requested in such a product. The interesting challenge was also to redefine the design language and the formal universe of this range. Mainly because it needed a refresh and also because that we wanted to harmonized the brand approach.

When plugged together, keyboard and tablet allows kids to interact with the tablet.
The technical development represented the biggest part of the work. As we needed to fit important functional components in a toy by keeping a low price.
After a quick study of electronic product design history, we can clearly see that mainly during the 80’s-90’s the idea was to fit all the technology in the world into a black sharp box (2001 A Space Odyssey would be a good reference).
This trend extend to nowadays product such as phone, TV, computer etc. Some brands tend to have a richer approach by implementing round shapes, rounded angles etc..
We can also see that white appears to be the new black regarding technological products since we want them to look friendly
As we were designing this product we tried to mixed the technical part with a friendly / toy shape.
