H2OK — Energy Final Project

Joakim and I set out to build something useful for our final Energy project. We didn’t want to simply bring awareness to an issue or create an interesting piece of artwork connected to Energy.

mPower Me — The Full UX Process

ELEVATOR PITCH: Ever wonder why Prius drivers are the most annoying drivers on the road?

Now imagine a live feed of energy use at home? […]

Einstein’s Dreams

I must confess, I read more of Einstein’s Dreams by Alan Lightman than I was assigned. For those of you who have never read it, Lightman’s novel fictionalizes Albert Einstein’s dreams during the period of time he worked as a patent clerk in Switzerland and pondered his Theory of Relativity. To me, the book felt remarkably […]

Water + Light = Life

Water + Light = Life is a water filter that powers a light. Joakim and I talked a lot about ideas for this project. Although I would love to create something that truly makes a difference on the grid, I doubt in the next 7 weeks we could design the battery to end all batteries […]
