SmartMow is a robotic lawn mower designed for domestic use. It's size makes it perfect for small areas of lawn that require trimming and cutting on a regular basis. The robot is placed on the lawn surface that needs to be trimmed and it automatically detects the perimeter's borders while also calculating the most efficient movement pattern.
The challenge for this project was to keep the cost of manufacturing as low as possible, while also ensuring the assembly process is simple and straight forward. This is why it is manufactured using vacuum forming for both the upper and lower components of the body.
Special attention has been given to the aesthetics of this small robot. Bearing in mind that this is a robot equipped with fast rotating cutting blades, the design had to both be safe for children and pets, but also be appealing and friendly.
The parkassist™ camera concept is an iteration over the previous camera that the company had. The client needed to reduce the size of the original version while still maintaining all the inner electronics the same. In addition to that, the new camera was meant to be waterproof and easy to maintain.
In order to achieve these goals, a complete redesign of the body was needed. The new design had to follow the same functionality guidelines of the previous model.
A modular solution was employed for the two cameras so that they could be easily replaced and serviced. The entire body of the camera can be clipped onto aluminum rails with the help of the two spring loaded clips.
Client - EB2 (EB2Global was employed by parkassist™ to manufacture the original camera and update it's design)
The Gilia adult toy was commissioned by goGgo. The brief mentioned that the product needed to be appealing and friendly. The shape had to invite people to play and appeal to both the curious and the more conservative of kind.
The formal language chosen closely resembles the organic curvatures of the human body thus making the product look and feel friendly, while the colors invite to a more joyful approach.
The toy is fully waterproof and features a small vibrating motor at the tip. The positive and negative shapes in the button make it easy to find it without looking thus enhancing the user experience.
Gilia is part of a family of toys that the goGgo brand developed.

Smartphone Gaming Controller
EB2 commissioned this project with one goal in mind, to make a smartphone game controller that is both ergonomic and appealing in it's design. The organic shape is designed to reduce stress over the wrists and hands for prolonged periods of use.
The entire body rubber coated to achieve a soft touch feel that would also secure a tighter grip while playing.
