Abstract
This report describes the development of mounts for the company Narrative’s camera Narrative Clip 2, focusing on people with an active lifestyle. The terminal goal of the thesis is to come down to which types of mounts to develop for the active lifestyle user and thereafter, create a couple of 3D-printed mounts for these placements. Moreover, suggestions for optimizing the Clip itself and its user-interaction for the purpose are desirable in the thesis.

The first step of the implementation was to understand the needs of potential customers and get insight in where a placement of the Narrative Clip 2 would be the most suitable for their activity/sport. Hence, surveys were sent out to Swedish and international potential customers. The... (More)
This report describes the development of mounts for the company Narrative’s camera Narrative Clip 2, focusing on people with an active lifestyle. The terminal goal of the thesis is to come down to which types of mounts to develop for the active lifestyle user and thereafter, create a couple of 3D-printed mounts for these placements. Moreover, suggestions for optimizing the Clip itself and its user-interaction for the purpose are desirable in the thesis.

The first step of the implementation was to understand the needs of potential customers and get insight in where a placement of the Narrative Clip 2 would be the most suitable for their activity/sport. Hence, surveys were sent out to Swedish and international potential customers. The placements compiled are bicycle handlebars and helmets and the following needs were compiled for the mounts: secure, small size, holds the camera steady and possibility to rotate the camera. Also, the following desires were compiled: pliable and attachable to all handlebars/helmets.

In the second step of the implementation, the concept generation phase, the problem was divided into subproblems making it easier to focus on one problem at a time. The subproblems were solved respectively by internal and external search, whereas various concept ideas were generated and sketched. Subsequently, the concept ideas used in the final prototype were selected by discussions, concept screening, testing of simple prototypes and a workshop.

The result of the thesis are mounts including a ball-joint for rotation, a snap-fit case where to attach the camera and bottom plates that can be varied depending on placement; one for helmets and one for handlebars. The ball-joint and the snap-fit case are assembled with screws, making it possible to adjust the angle of the camera even more than with only the ball-joint. The ball-joint and the snap-fit case can be moved between the two bottom plates as it attaches with magnets - a feature making it easy to vary if you want to switch location of your camera between your helmet and your handlebar.
