Elevator Notes

October 5, 2010 at 3:32 pm Leave a comment

We made a prototype and tested it in class. The idea was a sensor controlled foot-pad that would let one open the elevator without having to touch buttons. This would be very good news for people with bacteriophobia (most of us developed this after the world-media informed us about how dangerous the swine flu is, or was cause they don’t talk about it anymore). With this foot pad even wheelchair users or elderly would manage to open an elevator without having to stretch or lift their hand! So we made this from paper and rubber and exhibited it to our peers. Luckily our team expanded and we got more and more ideas involved, resulting in a high tech elevator system that could inform its passengers before they even stepped into it: How many passengers are already inside the elevator (so that you know if you will fit in), how many were getting off/on on each floor. This would be solved by cameras or a weight scale system for instance. Live music was suggested as well!
The prototyping was done in very short time and we all produced a lot of ideas and prototypes, some groups more than others. And it gave us good prospects on our future careers as entrepreneurs, designers and creative managers: Do – Don’t Talk!
