Whirlpool came to gravitytank with a rough question: how can we make a “smart” water bottle. It was our job to determine the desirability of a water bottle with smart capabilities: who was it for and why they would buy. We conducted qualitative interviews to shape the “smart” water bottle and ended with a Micropilot, a quantitative study measuring real life purchase intent.
