Cycling jacket affordance

Posted: August 14th, 2010 | Author: ktcita | Filed under: Affordances | Tags: , , | 2 Comments »

My cycling jacket has sleeves that are detachable via zippers. The designer has cleverly made it so that it’s impossible to switch the left and right sleeves when putting them back onto the jacket. The way they’ve done this is to have the head part of the zipper on the body on the right hand side, and on the sleeve on the left-hand-side. You can never put the sleeves on the wrong side.
