This has been a connected hardware project I started also about a year ago. We are currently applying to the R/GA (techstars) connected devices accelerator here in New York. The site is just a quick blog I created to show the of the development processâ€¦sketches, models, some of the hands on stuff needed to realize a product.
This app has been a passion project of mine for over a year with it originally being titled â€œmailslateâ€. During the design process I went through so many wireframes to eventually learn that the app needed to be stripped down to 4 pure essential functions (News, Mail, Photos, Contacts) with the aim to be the main app on an ipad for your grandparents to easily communicate with family.
Personal Kickstarter project that reached over 720% of itâ€™s goal. Â This was an intensive but rewarding two months of product design and development which also included all the branding. Rainscarf is the first fully reversible scarf that reveals a secret rain hood inside.
This project I was involved with a startup in sketching up some new forms of their product (check out the site link above to see how it works). Once a design direction was selected I brought the shape into Solidworks (CAD) and discovered an efficient 2 piece construction for production, 3D printing the designs also helped in proving this approach.
