2 Development of a Framework for Successful Emotional Design for a Long-term Use
2.1 Reflective Products
2.2 Behavioural Products
2.3 Visceral Products
The discarded products today are reflective and behavioral (functional) even thought they are undesirable due to damage (not visceral),
The usability of a product is determined solely by its visceral and behavioural elements, and not the reflective elements,
The products with a reflective connection can be unusable, but are not discarded by the user.
3 Research Through Design
3.1 User Research
Why the piece was still being used, if it was viscerally unappealing or lacked behavioural aspect,
Why the piece was discarded, if it was viscerally well maintained and working well (behavioural),
Why the piece was not discarded, even if it was viscerally damaged and/or lacked behavioural aspect.
