The future of designing and making
The Design and Manufacturing Futures laboratory is researching and creating the tools and technologies of tomorrow, providing game-changing capability for the design, manufacture, operation and disposal of next generation products and machines.
The Product Design department at the Universidad Jorge Tadeo Lozano have been running PCA linked challenges as part of their Interaction Design course ‘Mediations’. For the third challenge students were required to design devices that could eliminate the risk of viral spread through cash transactions. Two of the resulting outputs are shown in the pictures below and demonstrate how […]
Harry today presented his poster titled “Investigating strategies for mass property replication in 3D printed prototypes” at DCC2020 – virtually, of course, given the world we now live in! The poster aims to introduce the use of variable infill for the purpose of replicating mass properties between as-designed and as-fabricated parts when using rapid prototyping. […]
An exciting project that we’ve been working on will release in the next few weeks. Similar to our recent Arduino project, the app will alert the user if they are speaking too loudly. Stay tuned for the release! UPDATE: The app has been released, visit the small talk page for more details
A paper from 2019 found that speaking with a louder voice creates more aerosolised viral particles [Asadi et al. 2019]. This simple Arduino project reminds people to not shout unnecessarily. It could be used in classrooms, meeting rooms or any other setting where people are talking. The equipment list, instructions and code are available here: […]
