Voice Loudness Monitor – Instructable

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/

PCA Interaction Design @ La Tadeo – Challenge 2

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 […]

Design 2020

We would like to thank the organisers of Design 2020 for a fantastic virtual conference, with four papers presented by member of the group: A FRAMING OF DESIGN AS PATHWAYS BETWEEN PHYSICAL, VIRTUAL AND COGNITIVE MODELS presented by David, DEMOCRATISING DESIGN THROUGH SURROGATE MODEL CONVOLUTIONAL NEURAL NETWORKS OF COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN REPOSITORIES and CO-WORD GRAPHS […]

The Workshop App goes live for alpha testing

The Workshop is a job scheduling tool for coordinating manufacturing in areas such as university workshops. It’s a collaborative initiative between the DMF lab’s project clean access, and industry partner CFMS. It has been developed to enable the continued functioning of University manufacturing centres by assisting the transition to more virtual interaction with students and […]

PCA Interaction Design @ La Tadeo

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 first challenge, students were asked to develop kits to help people move safely in and out of their homes. The proposed designs are shown in the pictures below and provide interesting insights into […]

SARS-Cov-2 Transmission Literature Review

Project Clean Access is about providing scientifically backed solutions to help create a safer environment. This literature review focused on gathering evidence of the different modes of transmission, as well as data on how successful various intervention measures have been. The following video summarises the key findings from the literature review: For those who cannot […]
