Maker Design - Tech

Tech-makers appear to come from two schools -new tech and
old tech, either way you've worked on how to create something that few could
imagine. Your project is remarkable as you've mastered tech, made it your
friend and  finished off with a project that is kicking it all over town.

Your project will fall into one of the following markets:

Domestic - Domestic Maker projects
represent the consumer connecting with a unique piece, be it a tool for home,
an artefact or a practical item to assist with a regular home function.

Community - Community Maker projects represent the community
connecting with your project. It might be an item to create a mood, a learning
device to help advance your community or a practical item to assist with a
community function.

Commercial - Commercial Maker projects find their way into
corporate and government environments, sometimes as highly functional low
production runs, other times as one off custom items designed specifically for
task. Projects that show the maker's skill, courage and design insights will
shine here.

FLUXO - Luke Roberts

Maker Design - Tech

- Silver

FLUXO is the world’s first beautifully designed pendant lamp that allows to move the light in any direction with simple paint gestures on a smartphone. The light can be placed on the couch for reading, on the table for dinner, or on the ceiling to produce relaxing indirect light. All such light scenes can be produced by just one pendant lamp. Therefore, additional floor lamps or mood lights are no longer necessary. The setup of a light scene can easily be done with paint gestures on a smartphone. Each light scene can be stored in a list of personalized light scenes in the app. For more convenience, FLUXO actively learns how it is used, to predict the perfect light scene whenever it gets turned on. The traditional light switch can still be used but due to presence detection, FLUXO can automatically turn itself on when someone enters the room and off when the room is left unoccupied.

iKettle & Smarter Coffee - Smarter Applications Ltd

Maker Design - Tech

- Gold

In 2015 we developed and within the same year launched two all-new consumer electronic products the “iKettle 2.0” and “Smarter Coffee”. The aim was to bring innovative technology and beautiful design together in a product that we all use everyday, making it a more intuitive and effortless experience. Design, quality and the user experience led the entire project. These products were to give the user a whole new morning experience ’A new way to start your day’ by having your kitchen appliances connected to an app that you can control from anywhere in the home or office.
