Conceptual and 3D DFM (design for manufacturing) for NITROVEND Vending Machine, to replace Generic Air with Nitrogen, in Car Tires. Generic Air is composed of 20% oxygen, 70% Nitrogen + other gases. Oxygen, especially at high temperatures and pressures, is a very reactive element causing Rusting (Oxidization). Tires can run very hot and Nitrogen, a more stable gas, helps prevent spikes in temperature. Oxygen corrodes aluminum and steel wheels, and also reacts with rubber aging the inner liner. As the inner liner ages, more and more air molecules can pass through it, causing more pressure losses. Air migrates through rubber. Car tires can lose 2 psi per month as a result of air leaking through.
In 2014, I started the design of this OLED Portable Lights for Tech Startup www.Alkilu.com
It's a OLED light (Organic LED) innovative, cutting edge technology, world first application in portable devices. We started 3 designs at same time: LeafLit, BookLit and and brought this one: TripLit to completion doing a successful Kickstarter. After 1600 hours, 28 design iterations and a dozen of prototypes, here the product straight from production run. Today,
I just got it in my hands for the first time. It's always exciting, being able to touch and hold the result of your own creation. Something, that was first a glimpse in your head, then went on paper, then on computer in 3D and colors, engineered, detailed, reworked endlessly and finally.... It's amazingly bright and the quality of light is excellent. It bundles with PV Solar Power, re-charges on USB in less than 2 hours and delivers +24 hours of light.
Now Available on Amazon: TripLit & TripLit Bundle with Solar Panel
ArchGrow is a US patent-pending, revolutionary approach to horticultural lighting. By utilizing the latest advances in solid state light emitting devices, the intensity and spectrum of light is equivalent and exceeds that of traditional gas, plasma or arc lamps, and matches the spectrum and intensity of the Sun.
BookLit for Alkilu, One half reading light, one half bookmark. This ultra-thin, versatile and transparent OLED reading lamp emits most of its light in one direction, giving the page the light it needs while making it easy on your eyes. With just a single charge from a USB cable, you can read for up to twenty straight hours (if you really cannot put it down).
The first wireless breathing device, a couch & companion. The Puck is a Breath Sensitive Controller, Bluetooth connected to your Smartphone for ZENYTIME. My task was to redesign the controller "The Puck" the wireless device is incorporating their existing electronic components: breathing sensors, PCB, rechargeable battery pack and micro USB plug. Initial Sketches to Final Concept. Several iterations, brainstorming on the most appropriate, user friendly and appealing form, suitable for different gender and age brackets.
Natural OLED lighting for natural settings. Because it uses OLED technology, the LeafLit emittes light more evenly than a propane or electric lantern, giving you greater night-time visibility without the painful glare. It’s also cool to the touch, so it’s safe to leave around small children. Light, compact, and with a battery life of over 20 hours, it makes a great companion for any camping trip or outdoor event. Plug into a USB for a full charge in about an hour.
