Prototyping with Clay. What if?

The Advanced 3D Design were assigned to create a product that they felt could improve their teenage lives. Students had to write the purpose of such product, create sketches, and discuss functionality. Below are some examples of what they came up with. 


Introducing the Portable Powered Outlet

My product I did is a solar and LED powered outlet. On the top it takes in solar energy and it also takes in LED lighting. In the front it has two outlets you can plug into, it also has a place where you can see how full it is. On the back it has a concave part, that’s for hanging it on things. On the lower part of the back it has buttons where you can turn on/use the LED or solar energy, there’s also an off button where you can shut off the energy for whole thing. On one of the sides it has a place where you can store small things.


Introducing the Panhou Planter

A small pot planter that also functions as a storage unit.  A drainage hole is integrated to the bottom of the pot so as to not stress the plant out with too much water. The top drawer functions as a large unit of storage for larger items that may fit in the palm of a child’s hand. The bottom drawer consists of two shallower, half units. These two compartments may be used to store seeds that are frequently lost. Each drawer has attached onto it magenta and pink colored leaves to be used as handles for opening and closing.
The product is a light gray color, but hints of lilac purple show when looked at the right way. The top of the product is designed with organic flower and vine shapes. Along the outer walls of the product are indented designs that relate to plants and gardening.

Introducing Maddie’s Marvelous Mug

Maddie’s Marvelous Mug is the name of my invention. I created this mug to save people time so they can do more important things instead of making their favorite drink hot or cold. When you’re at work wouldn’t it be nice to have a cup of coffee that stayed warm all day? After a long run wouldn’t it be nice for your water or chocolate milk to stay cold for a long time? With my mug that is exactly what happens. 
Pick up the warm colored side pointing up and your drink is automatically warm! If you pick up the opposite side with cool colors pointing down, your drink will automatically be cold! My product will save you time and energy.
