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.
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!
A paper from 2019 found that speaking with a louder voice creates more aerosolised viral particles [Ristenpart 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: https://www.instructables.com/Voice-Loudness-Monitor-Arduino/
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 second challenge students were required to design games that could help educate or combat misinformation about the virus’ spread and causes. The resulting outputs (as shown in the pictures) demonstrate a wide range […]
