React Wakeboard Bindings - Prototype

An image showing the testing set up with the SLS 3D printed prototype to test the magnetic releasing system of the concept. The prototype was put through rigorous testing phases to establish the effectiveness of the concept and prove that it would work under a set of predetermined conditions, based on theoretical calculations. The magnetic release concept worked very well, with current users approving of the new system and current wakeboarders endorsing and backing the development of the prototype. Users expressed concern about one binding releasing and not the other which could cause potential injury, however, this was addressed by modifying and integrating a new electromagnet system instead of using regular magnets.

VISION-X - Enhancing Soldier Training

A computer-generated image using SolidWorks Visualise, showing the new VISION-X training optic mounted to an AR-15. This project was a second-year Internet of Things project completed in the second semester. VISION-X brings modern big data and AI to soldier training in the form of a smart optic scope to mount on top of weapons. The optic features dual scope technology, where targets are traced in real-time, with the AI suggesting adjustments to the user live while they are aiming down sights. This is a very secretive and classified market, so it was difficult to gather information on user preferences and current developments that exist on the market, which created a challenge.

Vision-X - Enhancing Personalised Soldier Training

An image showing the app capabilities of VISION-X and the User Interfacing of the application. VISION-X can be linked to any device using Bluetooth and then paired with the app where the optic will send the data to the user and display their sessions on-screen in charts. These charts and results from training sessions are also shared with higher areas of command so that they are able to identify where they can improve their training methods to increase the quality of the soldier on the whole.

A smart kettle-bell trainer with variable weight by just filling with water or sand. Soft and sculpted recycled steel handle tailors to the user's grip to ensure the best workout experience. Accompanied by a single metal tube stand, seamlessly blending into any modern home.

A computer-generated render showing the in-context use of Kettle alongside the App Login User Interfacing. Bluetooth connectivity and a motion sensor in the handle allow you to connect to the kettle. app, with no subscription for the first 6 months. Users can join the community with other kettlers, follow and communicate with their favourite personal trainers through live sessions and track all of their workouts as they go. The product encourages cost-friendly workouts using things that they have access to at home [water/sand] to increase or decrease the weight. The project included rapid research and sketch ideation, as well as refined development and high quality delivery.
