We’re really into our 3D Printing so working with Autodesk on the Ember, their first foray into hardware, was an exciting challenge. We worked on everything from concept to tooling.
Developed together with Reef One, the biOrb air is a terrarium for the modern home featuring clever technology that creates and monitors its own environment, helping to keep plants or even frogs happy and healthy.
As keen cyclists we enjoyed working on the design and development of this handy tool which helps you replace a dropped chain. We used 3D printing for all the testing and the first production batch were 3D printed with a graphite-filled nylon material.
We developed a complete range of USB power devices for Gear 4, we nicknamed the style ‘Flare’.
The brief was to design a pre-lit Christmas tree that was simple to assemble and robust. We developed a patented gravity-screw connection system which also carried the power for the lights, it eliminates the need for fiddly wires & connections.
Designed to protect the load on the back of trucks during transportation this product had to be strong enough to be dropped from height in freezing conditions while also being flexible under the strain of heavy-duty straps.
Speaking to users and healthcare professionals during the development of this innovative device ensured we designed the product to meet their needs. It’s patented cut-to-size design enables a custom fit.
This desktop SAD light looks good from every angle and features LED lights with a removable diffuser for task and treatment modes.
This was the first digital train control system that Hornby produced, we had to design a clear user interface along with aesthetics that wouldn’t date.
We used our vast manufacturing experience to create parts that use a range of production techniques including injection moulding, extrusion, fabrication and CNC to produce the parts for Ember.
The challenge when designing the Quick anal-irrigation system was to balance the needs of the user with medical safety standards and manufacturing constraints.
This Scalextric Start controller & hub is the entry-level kit so had to be low-cost but robust and reliable, we even managed to fit in a simple mechanical limiting feature to help reduce crashes.
Working from the client’s design concept, we undertook detailed mechanical design for production, manufactured prototypes and supplied the tooling for both die-casting and injection moulding through our Product Resolutions Hong Kong.
This LED aquarium light is rarely seen by the user but we still made it look great! We designed this from concept through to off-tool parts.
We had to understand detailed human anatomy to ensure the profile of the cone was both functional and comfortable for the user.
The complete Gear 4 ‘Flare’ range, we worked on all aspects of the design from concept through prototyping to mechanical design.
Bodyclock Active is part of a range of products we’ve designed for Lumie, this one features smooth curves and some clever internals to help keep it cool.
IPX4 is a range of electric outdoor leisure products, it featured this electric BBQ as well as the first ever electric outdoor patio heater.
We designed this needle-free hub to be made from just 2 parts with no bonding or gluing required making it a reliable low-cost solution.
Designed to coincide with the launch of the iPhone 5, this was a dual-shot case aimed at the outdoor/rugged sector.
We’re quite proud of the fact that this heater design has been widely copied, its simple form with an exciting colour pallet made it a target for the imitators.
London 2012 seems a long time ago but we had a great time developing the Velodrome racing set with Hornby & LOCOG.
Proxlog monitors the air when clinical room disinfection is being carried out, we created a design that was suitable for small batch production which could then be scaled up after trials.
