mini camera "Higgs"

Higgs

Always keep an eye open. The mini camera of the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS is intelligent, can detect faces and has other features. Experiences made in bioaesthetics acted as model for this form that can especially be seen in the combination with tripod legs.

Experiences made in bioaesthetics acted as model for this form that can especially be seen in the combination with tripod legs. This makes the camera look very active – constantly working and delivering information.

Roboter "Roboworm"

Robo Worm

This robot mirrors the movements of a caterpillar. The motions of the caterpillar’s circular muscles are simulated through the controlled magnetisation of metal rings integrated into a silicone tube. The construction enables the Robo Worm to move on rough and uneven surfaces found in canals and tunnels.

Robo Worm

This robot mirrors the movements of a caterpillar. The motions of the caterpillar’s circular muscles are simulated through the controlled magnetisation of metal rings integrated into a silicone tube. The construction enables the Robo Worm to move on rough and uneven surfaces found in canals and tunnels. Even where chain wheels and other traditional means of transportation get caught, the Robo Worm contorts itself without problems.
 
Robo Worm has two heads, one at each end, making it possible to move backwards without having to flip over. This principle enables backwards movement even in very tight shafts. Robo Worm is equipped with cameras and additional sensors, for example a microphone, to make recordings possible even in hard-to-reach areas. The recordings can be sent to a receiving station immediately or stored in the device for later extraction.

washing machine "Sphere"

Sphere

We have developed a futuristic design prototype with a visionary glimpse of the design of the future for Bauknecht. The round drum and the rotation of the washing machine are already indicative of the result: a flowing, round shape. The goal was cutting down to the essentials without removing important elements.

washing machine / Bauknecht

Nature itself was the inspiration for this innovative washing machine. Organic curves stage the machine's exterior and draw closer to its function. The round drum and the rotation of the washing machine are already indicative of the result: a flowing, round shape. The goal was cutting down to the essentials without removing important elements. Minimalistic shapes, tinted glass front with push-to-open mechanism and puristic controls all but eliminate boredom during the washing process. Whether it is in the open eat-in kitchen or in a wellness bathroom – it changes the atmosphere of any room for the positive.

mobile hard drive "MobileLite Wireless G2"

MobileLite Wireless G2

The MobileLite Wireless G2 meets all technical requirements for a high quality mobile hard drive. Due to the curvature on the upper and lower surface the centrally placed plastic strip is narrower than the total height. The strip creates a colour contrast to the upper and lower surface and catches the eye.

MobileLite Wireless G2

The MobileLite Wireless G2 meets all technical requirements for a high quality mobile hard drive. Due to the curvature on the upper and lower surface the centrally placed plastic strip is narrower than the total height. The strip creates a colour contrast to the upper and lower surface and catches the eye. At the same time, the dark areas below and above disappear optically. As a result, the hard drive appears thinner. Another function of the strip is the protection of the hard drive. It cushions in case of possible impact and provides an all-around protection of the hard drive.

The uneven irregularities (dimples) are concave to the inside. They are large and not very deep. The edges of the dimples are sharply polished which additionally facilitates the friction process. Ceramics are used only on the pestle head and in the core area of the bowl because it is fragile. It is replaced with silicone everywhere else.
