Product Planning Laboratory
Generating ideas for designs based on experiences and services
Products offer convenience to the people who use them. But, there are some devices and systems that provide services to users that offer new values or experiences. How can we design services, systems, and products that are capable of offering new experiences and values to users? We research ways to plan the best products whose state changes with the passage of time.

For SocietyIn the 21st century, products are expected to have a kind of value that did not exist in the past. To generate such a value, we must think of ways to develop products based on designs that fuse engineering concepts.
