The purpose of the project module is to introduce students to the development of interactive physical products that can make everyday or working life easier in various ways, such as robots and products with built-in intelligence including movement, simple electronic control, interface and mechanical solutions are integrated as part of its functionality and aesthetics. The project is focused on working with an original, innovative solution at a balanced technical-aesthetic level, where experiences from the course modules are integrated into concept development or detailing of the project. The topic of the project could be the design of kitchen equipment, dispensers, garden tools, personal aids or toys. Emphasis is placed on the interplay between an investigative, testing and reflective methodology and an iterative process.
The student is expected to spend 30 hours per ECTS, which for this activity means 450 hours.
