Project 1: Designing a Bio-Inspired Hopping Toy
This was the first project of the course to allow us to gain exposure to the engineering design process. The photo above shows the final CAD of my design for the project.
Project 2: Designing a Phototropic Toy for 4th Graders
The aim of this project was to design a toy that fourth graders would enjoy playing with. The challenge was that it had ot be biomimetic at the same time. As such, the challenge was not only how to design the toy with the interest of the target user group (fourth graders) in mind, but also how to design a mechanism which closely mimicked the motion of the actual animal.
