The Lightbeam was designed with minimalism in mind. There is only function, and lines.
Using a combination of stock components and custom 3D printed parts, a fully realised product emerges that bypasses traditional manufacturing techniques.
This mechanical diaphragm was first modelled in SolidWorks to make sure all the parts fit together properly. It was done as an exercise in creating layered assemblies that can be fabricated using a laser cutter. Constructed out of 2mm plywood and .2mm black cardboard stock for the iris blades.
This is a prototype of a game that was designed to be placed inside the exhibition space of a toy museum.
Users place certain blocks on a semi-transparent screen, and a Processing sketch recognizes which block it is, and where it is positioned (using a modified PS3 eye camera and AR markers on the bottom of the blocks). It can then project the right images right on top of the blocks, thus augmenting the physical blocks with digital projections. The screen is lit from below with a strip of infra-red LEDs that emit light with a wavelength of 850nm.
It was done as a Joint Master Project at the TU Delft, our group was called 'Studio Prik'.
'Frame' is an interactive store display concept that helps customers make a choice by offering suggestions based on the behaviour of previous customers. When a pair of glasses is picked up, three other pairs of glasses will be highlighted to guide the customers in their choice.
This project was part for the course Interactive Technology Design at the Industrial Design Engineering faculty at the Technical University Delft. The final working prototype uses a combination of Arduino + Processing + PHP (OpenSlopeOne) + MySql to record behaviour and serve recommendations. It was done in collaboration with other students, our group was called 'things3'.
This 3D printed collier is printed in its entirety. Each individual link is made up of the edges of a diamond, and are arranged to form a flexible chain.
You can buy it from my shapeways shop for $49.99.
