SCAMPER – Spoon & Rice

Question 3
Practical assignment (problem solving) 

  • You are given a teaspoon as an object. Now apply each one of the SCAMPER techniques to it and give a brief explanation of what new product comes of this and how it can be marketed.
  • You have to design packaging for rice. The packaging has to be different from what is out there in the market. Apply each one of the SCAMPER techniques and do a write-up on your findings. Then choose the option that you think would work best and do a sketch of what the packaging would look like.

I use whole week just walking around and thinking about these questions.

Here are the results


S – Spoon made of a crystallized powder, which melts into a tasty drink. It can be used in both cold and hot water. All of the tastes contain different minerals and vitamins, which make them a healthy and attractive drink for children and adults. Colorful spoons attract children.

C – Spoon made of soft plastic material  – small children friendly. Combined with a thermometer, so parents can check temperature of their children food. Spoon changes color depends on temperature, which can be personalized.
