Issue #5

With the prototype of the product being settled, the remaining thing to do is to find ways to market it. Right now, the ceramic cup containing the candle is a poor conductor of heat, hence the cup will get really hot after a while. To combat such a problem, we added 1 layer of bubble wrap and 1 thin layer of styrofoam to insulate the candle. The bubble wrap also serves as a cushion, in the event that the cup is dropped, but it can only absorb a limited amount of impact. Glow-in-the-dark paint was also applied to enhance visibility, particularly at night. Given that the candle will be mainly used at light for illumination purposes, the glow-in-the-dark paint helps users to identify the candle in areas of low visibility.
