The design opportunities identified and addressed in the degree
projects covered as diverse and challenging themes as: Automated
welding of asymmetric rebar cages for internal structures of
concrete buildings directly at construction sites. A more pleasant
and natural expression of milk at neonatal intensive care units. An
intelligent system to provide and monitor the use of both
preventive and relieve medicine for asthmatics. A desktop
record-cutting lathe for independent musicians, DJs and music
lovers. An optimal solution for a wearable tube-feeding system for
an active, spontaneous and social everyday life. A low-cost
diagnosis system to identify undiagnosed diabetics. A practical
educational kit to provide first-time mothers with the information
and essentials to achieve a successful breastfeeding experience. A
monitoring device and pacing assistant encouraging patients to
exercise regularly after a heart attack.
This wide span of new ideas and designs to improve and enrich our
daily life is an indicator of the design opportunities just waiting
to be identified and addressed by the professional industrial
to the 2015 on-line exhibition
