IWA is a solution for wheelchair users to temporarily convert their everyday wheelchair to a mobility scooter. Standing for ‘Independent Wheelchair Assist’ it gives the user independent access to their local community and beyond with a full charge lasting 34 kms. Once they reach their destination, they can disconnect and access more enclosed and tight spaces in their wheelchair by way of a support arm and locking mechanism, parking the unit outside. The user does not need to lift their body into another device, utilising the comfort and ergonomics of their specifically designed wheelchair. It’s a Segway meets wheelchair users if you will.
True View 3D
TrueView was a startup I co-founded with two others that converts your single lens phone camera to allow you to view and capture 3D images and videos from your mobile phone. The photos and videos could then be shared through a social network called ViewPop. The phone slots into the device to allow 3D content capture by-way of a prism and mirror setup, splitting the single image into two seperate images. Tailored lenses at specific distances from the phone screen merge them back together creating one single image or video with depth perception added. The Hassleblad styling was perfect for a photography-centric target market.
Fold Project is a fold up eating set for camping and events. The product folds up from an A4 sheet of stamped polypropylene which folds into a watertight cup, bowl, fork and spoon. The set can be used up to fifty-thousand times before breaking and is fully recyclable at the end of its life. All made in New Zealand. Say goodbye to single-use eating containers and utensils!
Barkitecture is a range of flatpack dog houses available in three sizes. The houses initially launched in three colours. In the future the sides and top will be customisable before ordering to fit the personality of any home and dog. It can be used both indoors and out and uses no fixing or tools to assemble. It’s all slot together and light enough to build to be put together no matter who you are.
Concept cars were a large component of my time in Germany. While I was there I had the pleasure of working on the interior with the Pilotfish team on a concept car for mini which helped promote the 2013 Mini Cooper S production car. Lights and UK focused detailing were at the epicentre of the concept and provided a one-off take on what could be the coolest Mini Cooper yet. The team was amazing.
