Welcoming our Summer Interns

Posted Leave a commentPosted in News

On Monday we officially welcomed a cohort of five summer interns to the DMF lab. These include Lousie Larsson, Oliver Shiffmann, Lloyd Cleary-Richards, Adam McClenaghan and William Murray. They will be working together on projects ranging from Brain Controlled Interfaces for Design; Gesture-driven CAD and Quantum-enabled configuration design tools. If you would like more information […]

Posted Leave a commentPosted in News, Project Clean Access

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 […]
