GOOD DESIGN AWARD
The Caplio GX100 is built on the concept of “a tool that surpasses tool usability”, so it features shapes that are essential to cameras, and its detailed design contributes both to its reliability as a tool and to its functional excellence.
The Caplio GX100 can be carried in a bag or pocket so it can be used wherever users go. Compactly designed, the camera has a grip that allows users to hold it firmly, providing excellent manual control.
The smooth and flat, silver and black shapes of the IPSiO GX3000SF represent the integration of business product robustness with office suitability.
The release of the IPSiO GX3000SF has weakened the common idea that the design of office automation products is of less importance than moderate pricing or the provision of necessary functions. The IPSiO GX3000SF has prompted the industry to recognize the importance of design in office automation products.
The front window enables users to load paper or replace print cartridges easily, and the machine is small enough to be placed on a small desk or shelf.

QREX:SR25-M MT1c/ SR25-M MT1c W
The “QREX:SR25-M MT1c/SR25-M MT1c W” was designed for users without knowledge of gas meters. If a domestic gas supply is interrupted due to earthquake or unchecked flow from an appliance, the QREX:SR25-M MT1c/SR25-M MT1c W enables the user to restart the gas flow at the meter.
If the gas flow is blocked at the appliance stage, communication functions built into the QREX:SR25-M MT1c/SR25-M MT1c W will send details to a monitoring center, who will then call the customer to inform him/her how to restart the gas supply. The recovery button on the gas meter flashes to indicate which buttons must be pressed and what operations need to be performed. The QREX:SR25-M MT1c/SR25-M MT1c W was designed to provide more visual operations and usability.
Elements Based Font RT Font New Gothic
The Ricoh “RT Font New Gothic" font is horizontally long to give printed text width and stability. We eliminated the feet of gothic fonts and emphasized the baselines of horizontals. This has improved the RT font readability and given it smoothness to readers. To prevent the more complex letters in the font appearing compressed, we have provided “unit replacing functions” .
