Hey there! We are a team of 8 members embarking on Interactive & Smart Product Design.
Brief Introduction of us
Our theme consist of 2 different projects: The Smart Toy Design and 3D Printer Design. The Smart Toy Design group consists of Shawn, Jeannie, Sab and I and we strive to implement a next-generation interactive gadget for pets that incorporates innovative technology. Thus far, we have designed our own soft toy using a program called Easy Toy, as well as undergone numerous brainstorming and market research on relevant smart toy products.
Meanwhile 3D Printer Design group consists of Jun Hao, Alvin, Stanley and Felix. They are to bring SLA (Stereolithography) 3D printing technology to the next level by redesigning and improving the different parts of the 3D printer. Further exciting updates about their progress will be up soon! So stay tune!
Our Progress! (Smart toy design)
Our progress so far in the Smart Toy Design team has been rather smooth sailing. A considerable amount of time were spent on cracking our brain for innovative juices to craft out various smart products.
We are also working very closely together with a pet toy design company (HangZhou TianYuan Pet Products Factory) to tap on their expertise as well as exchanging creative ideas to bring conventional pet toys to the next frontier.
Over the course of many weeks, we continue to gain deeper understanding on aspects such as pets behavior, exposure to existing pet products while factoring consumers preferences and marketability should such product features roll out. Our next meeting with the company would be this coming Friday, so stay tune for further development updates!
In the coming days we will be using Rhino to 3D model our product concepts. Thats all for now! Stay tune for our next post!
