Sustainable pointe shoes for ballet training

Sustainable pointe shoes for ballet training

Designed for aspiring ballerinas, and professional dancers, they are intended to be used during training and practice, as these sessions take much longer time than show/performance. With removable toe boxes and pressure pad sensors, they help reduce the wasteful behaviour of having to discard a whole pair of shoes and track pressure to help prevent injuries and for dancers to improve their performance.

Coffee machine functional prototype

Coffee machine functional prototype

This is a functional prototype of the AeroPress coffee machine as part of a group project. The device automatically brews coffee to user's desired strength, serves the coffee, and resets the process by remove the coffee waste. The main focus of the project is to design a functional embedded system and perform product mechanical analysis.

This final year project aims to provide the users with a system capable of mixing customised and personalised serums in context of the home, encouraging them to adopt a more sustainable behaviour.

Throughout my years at Loughborough University, I have had opportunities to explore many aspects of design from discovering problems to developing solutions. One of the core projects I have worked on is a fully functional electro-mechanical AeroPress coffee machine; it broadens my knowledge of embedded system design and high-fidelity prototyping using metal fabrication processes. I believe one of my strengths being a student at Design School is the skill to find the balance between innovation, functionality, and aesthetics. Other key areas I would like to learn more and delve into for my future career are design for manufacturing and sustainable product development.
