I designed a toy car that was powered by a rewired, hand-crank flashlight. The mechanism powered 4 LED headlights, 4 LED taillights and a motor. The body was designed in Illustrator and laser cut from foam core board. It was my first time soldering and working with electrical circuits.
The Knight Light runs on a 3W LED bulb. With this bulb, you can run it 12 hours a day, for 1 year, and only pay 80 cents. You would spend around $16 on a normal 60W filament bulb for that amount of time.
The Knight Light uses all friction fit parts; there’s no adhesive necessary.
The Knight Light projects the Bat symbol at night.
From an angle, the cube just looks like layers of foam core board. Look straight on, and you’ll see the optical illusion of a 3-dimensional football with the block M on it.
myCradle aims to solve the problem of “the misplaced iPod”. Studies indicate that people who lose things often should practice keeping them in a consistent location. This solution is based on the notion of having somewhere special to rest the user’s iPod everyday. The rapid prototyping of the concept included vacuum forming, laser cutting, and packaging design.
The objective of the assignment was to design a humane mousetrap using as few materials as possible. The materials were limited to basswood, acrylic and glue. The mechanism used is a one-way door fixed to a wooden hinge. No mice were harmed during the research and development of this fully functional project.
