In this project, a mini machine is invented in the objective of helping people ease their daily job. This mini machine has specifications of more than four components and at least two mechanical components built in. Its maximum weight is to be at 20kg and can be supplied by either mechanical or electrical power source. The mini machine for this project is “The Corn Peeler”. There are four factors that contribute to this project which are people’s demand, difficulties in peeling corn, minimizing human energy and producing less time required. Primary data set has been used in housewives, vendors and users from different profession have been targeted. Survey is used to collect data from the respondents selected by using ‘Google’ form. Charts were used in analysing the data obtained from the survey. This project has obtained that a number of people demand of a corn peeler machine for them to peel their corn easily. Other than that, they also struggle from peeling their corn during cooking. Moreover, it is proven that people do want to invest on a machine that saves their time and energy in the kitchen or during their work. Our project shows that it is necessary to produce a mini machine for corn peeling. Design specifications, dimension and material selections were studied before the prototype was built. Testing and finishing were done to ensure the efficiency of the prototype is at its fullest.
