Electric Vehicles (EV) are the future of mobility. But high costs prevent mainstream adoption. We brainstormed 4 creative but practical ways to lower production costs.
Millions of tons of plastics are floating around in our seas. Marine life often mistakes these plastics for food and chokes on it. The compîle plastic soup skimmer is an innovative, modular sun-powered solution designed to sieve the plastics out of our oceans and protect sea life.
The main challenges preventing mass adoption are the limited number of charging stations and long charge times. The Revive ‘battery car’ is a mobile charging station that can revive a car by charging it at home, work, or wherever it is parked.
Telenet neede a new packaging for its digital tv setup box.We examined every possible aspect of the box: its contents, the logistic chain, distribution and customer needs, installation requirements and disposal options. We identified key properties and functions by talking to users, installers and distribution points. The conepts were further refined into concepts.
Although the concept of the driverless car is fabulous, the design remains rather conventional. We believe the new car configuration makes it possible to break out of the traditional car set-up. We got inspired by the BMW Isetta and took this iconic automobile from the fifties as a starting point to build further on the concept.
Bobsleighing is a high-tech and innovative discipline. How to improve the conventional design of the sled and optimize the performance of the athletes? The solution is simple yet ingenious: transfer ideas & technologies from other industries that face similar challenges. We introduce about 15 technologies in bobsleighing.
What do you do? Search for the First Aid kit (do we have that?), establish that the disinfectant is overtime (nevermind), try to open the bandaid box without spilling blood (oops), and struggle to apply a bandaid single-handedly (not easy!).
The solar still principle is not new, but today it is mainly used in small applications. In this device, water is distilled using the heat of the sun. Time to take this principle to the next level.
This is how our lead designer Thomas inspired a international group of 60 industrial design students.
Isn’t it odd that you need a different drill bit for each hole you want to drill. We came up with Spiro, the drilling bot of the future. Set the diameter and depth, stick him to wall and Spiro will do the trick. Spiro is inspired on the technology of standard milling machines. Sounds nice, right?.
