1. Research to develop innovations in the home

We're looking for creative, articulate people to help us think about and ultimately re-imagine the future of home appliances. By future, we don't just mean 1-2 years from now, we mean what might be developed several years out.

We need 10 people in the LA area who can help us understand what people love (and don’t love!) about 'domestic life' (chores like cooking, laundry, cleaning, grocery shopping), and help us uncover what could be better about it in the future.

For those invited to the study, you'll use your iPhone or Android to submit a handful of submissions (photos + a bit of commentary) via a free app you can download onto your phone. In return, we will pay you $150 for completing 2 specific show + tell missions that center around your 'domestic life'.

We're also offering additional payment to those interested in participating in a follow up in-home interview (scheduled in your home sometime the week of April 16th).

...While we expect mostly women to apply, we're not opposed to guys - so please don't feel excluded gentleman!

Having a variety of participants and points of view is important, so please fill out our questionnaire as thoughtfully and honestly as you can. It will probably take you about 15 minutes. If you sound like a fit for the study, we will follow up with you via e-mail.

If you think any of your friends might be interested in applying for the study, please forward this link to your friends. For anyone we schedule through your referral we're offering a $20 thank you!

Thanks for your time + interest.
