DISPO | PORTABLE MEDICATION DISPENSER
Dispo is a portable medication dispenser and ecosystem that is currently under development.
FOLD | QUT CORPORATE GIFT PROJECT
This project was university-based, with the Queensland University of Technologies Science and Engineering faculty wanting new corporate gifts to present to visting academics and university guests. The specific discipline chosen for this design was the Mechanical Engineering faculty.
To figure out where this product has to be, mean and do, multiple brainstorming and experience mapping techniques were utilised.
The following designs were proposed at the initial design stage.
- A hourglass made from locally sourced timber with an injection moulded blue centre. The words energy, efficiency and production are laser etched on the vertical beams, with QUT’s logo on the top and base of the time piece.
- The second design is a laser-cut coaster with QUT’s logo and a gear aesthetic. A stand was provided made from QUT blue plastic.
- The final and chosen design was a laser-cut one piece phone stand.
Through many iterations and prototypes, this final design was produced and presented. The final product is a 3D-printed adjustable device stand. The main body can be printed flat, with a living hinge being printed into the legs, allowing them to flex and act as feet.
This project did well, being selected as a runner up and having the potential to be produced soon.
XL1 | BETTER BRISSY BBQ PROJECT
This project was proposed by the Brisbane City Council to our ID cohort, with the need for a new barbeque design. This design was to be an improvement over current designs, and needed to cater to the evergrowing multi-cultural population of Brisbane and Australia.
This project required incredibly indepth cultural and community research to identify exactly what our users wanted, liked, and what they did not. Multiple community BBQs and interaction sessions were performed, conversing and noting issues with multiple cultural groups. This information allowed the development of a criteria set for the perfect BBQ.
The XL1 cooktop was designed as a complete revamp of the currently
used models. Featuring a fold on lid and grill option, the cooktop gave
users multiple cooking options, with variable plate temperature
control. A fully sealed construction also reduced residue build up that
was common on existing systems.
The XL1 BBQ was designed to cater to large groups of
up to 20 people at a time, with multiple cooking options
available. Paired with unrivaled disabled access, this
BBQ is for all to use.
My groups design was successful in winning the project, which included a cash prize and a public design exhibition. Multiple news outlets also caught wind of the project and our design, and I was interviewed on ABC radio and 7 News.
STRIPES | MUSTANG IPHONE DOCK
This project required me to design a iPhone dock, based on a theme or design inspiration. The iconic Ford Mustang and its blue racing strips were chosen as the inspiration. STRIPES started as a sketch, before various foam models and variations were tested, before moving into CAD to model it.
This model was created for the final presentation using 3D printed parts that were sanded, primed, and finally painted.
AGILITY MAT | MODBOX
This project required my team to develop smart training products that would provide useful data for trainers and athletes, as well as adding fun elements to training routines.
The Agility Mat is a smart training surface that traces the users movements during training and fights, giving feedback on footing, movement during the fight and reaction time. This data is then used to focus in on areas that need improvement.
The Agility Mat can also be used for reaction and agility training games such as ‘Avoid the Lava’ and ‘Reaction’ where users will avoid or aim to reach the red LED’s around the mat as quick as possible. This training is fun and beneficial for participants of all ages.
ELDERLY USER CAMERA
This project entailed designing a camera for the elderly populus, and in particular those who are avid photographers but struggle with settings and current camera body styles. Using a combination of existing ergonomic data, user interviews and user testing this body and UI layout was chosen and modelled.
POD | HOMELESS MEDICATION DISPENSER
This conceptual device was designed to be a non-intrusive method of Methodone dosing for the Homeless, as constantly lining up for dosing can interrupt them from jobs, interviews and other crucial tasks.
POD dispenses Methodone gel to the users arm, which is absorbed through the skin. This dealt with issues surrounding dose safety, as well dose trading.
