Spirits Vending Machine
Designed to dispense alcoholic beverages in night clubs this project was design and built by myself and another team mate. Arduino hardware was used to program the device which include a stepper motor, an infra red sensor, two solenoid valves, an LCD screen, buttons and a coin collector. As you may be able to tell electronics is a hobby and a speciality. This project was brought from ideation to fully functioning prototype in under one week.
"Walnut" is an LED ceiling lamp which fuses dark cherry wood with polished steel to create a modern embodiment for the new LED technology being used within the product. The LED technology allows for an elegent, ultra thin design which outperforms other classic bulb pendant lights.
The "Homepost" composting bin aims to take the "EW!" out of composting by providing an aesthetically pleasing food collector for consumers kitchens (to replace the standard plastic bins). The product was designed for a batch manufacture of five units by a third party.
This first year group project saw me working with Stanley who was deaf, the project was incredibly rewarding as we worked closely with Stanley to overcome the problems that his hearing difficulties posed whilst learning to use his ipad.
Bullet Proof Vest
This project was based around applying existing materials and processes to new applications. The project used a new metal foam manufacturing process to create a commercially viable metal foam bullet proof vest with improved field performance. After this project was completed a company in the U.S. developed the exact same design and it has since started to creep into the market as the highest performing commercially viable bullet proof vest.
These designs were produced as trophys for 3 brunel students at the top of their fields. It was a competition between over 100 level 2 student, these designs were shortlisted into the last 10.
A functioning 2 stroke engine model that was created to help illustrate the functioning of a petrol engine.
