David Samuel Weiskopf
I think that good design is always created by many talented people sharing their ideas openly and by that it can have a big impact in our daily life. I know that design is not the solution for everything, but it offers the possibility to see things, needs, and problems from a different point of view.
Designing and creating new ideas and concepts is a beautiful way to signify a special expression.

Individual project Duration - 6 Month.
dubai 2035 An extraordinary city
Dubai is a fast growing and open minded city. New inventions and a pioneer spirit are only a few attributes of this new mega city. Because of these aspects as well as the new and modern infrastructure is Dubai the perfect setting for my concept Audi WISE - Shared Luxury.
Research Four major trends
After an extensive research and analysing the future trend map of the company â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;ZUKUNFTSINSTITUTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; I focused on four major trends
Sharing on demand
The concept The story behind
Through the big impact of the main trends I was able to create the use case and define the usability.
On demand Fleet
Connectivity Through smart devices
Long distance travel w.i.g.e.
Attraction Compare red buses London
Through desert and over water - Gliding effect
Perfect traffic stream Wise - lanes
From the sketch ...
... to the CAD Development Software - Autodesk Alias
From the first proportion to the final design
Final Design Audi WISE
An autonomous sharing vehicle, with uses the wing in ground effect for an efficiant movement
Technical Background Use of the Wing In Ground Effect
Inspiration: Nature and Technique
Reverse delta wing
Side flaps and side jets
Reverse delta wing
At the beginning
The interior is clean and modest. It creates an relaxing atmosphere and fits the needs of future customers.
Gliding on the road or over the water
CAD turns into reality

Expanding to younger target groups Current target group (45+) - shifting to younger one
By using emotional and rational needs of the target group we were able to define our purchase drivers and core elements.
Translate needs into product requirements Strategic design process
Choosing the 4 most important needs of our research-pool and develop different physical elements.
People + Cargo
> Rail system
T model for a younger generation A durable, more affordable entry vehicle
Sketching interior elements - the product requirements always in mind.
Flying dashboard Driver centered
Creating a thin and lightweight dashboard, to get a better overview for parking.
Use your own mobile devices Smartphone or tablet
By using a smartphone or a tablet, we keep the car more affordable and were able to use the â&#x20AC;&#x153;second devicesâ&#x20AC;? as speedometer or navigation system.
Customisable Parts (3d print)
Open cover and put in your tablet.
Rail system and foldable seats Space is everything
By using a horizontal rail system instead of a vertical one, combined with our foldable seats, you get the option to create more space than in the current T-model.

The concept Year 2066
By the big impact of the global change the mankind lives in autarkic cities. The roads in the outlands are badly damaged. Everybody gets wet-nursed by robots and is bored to death by the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;everyday same procedureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.
>>> Autarkic Cities
Emotions and needs
Across these facts the need for freedom, emotion and explorer passion gets stronger and stronger.

Myray 05 What is innovation? Within one week workshop, with our guest lecturer Dr. Gerald Steiner from Harvard University, we found out new ways to research scenarios that showed us problems, needs, and wishes of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC;s society. He pointed out that innovation consists not only of one factor - itâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC;s necessary to combine and merge relevant factors and stakeholders. Briefing: Our task was to create an innovative concept of a household product which interacts with someone or something in the year 2025.

Moods & inspiration Beauty, nature, and smooth objects
Bionic, fading edge, smooth surface.
The natural shape as well as the smooth movements of rays served as an inspiration and highly influenced the design of the Myray system.

Everyone likes the beauty of a swimming pool.
Use Case & kärcher app How it works
Myray works as an autonomous system, which stays in the pool permanently.

disconnection the filter is full - you get a message.
you get the signal to clean the filter.
take out filter and clean it.
Solar charger - myray rests on the surface of the water.
after cleaning, put the filter back into the water - it automatically reattaches itself.
Myray “sleeps”, if everything is perfecly clean.
Parts and function Technical aspects
Myray is a smart and IT-driven cleaning-system which cleans all pool areas and filters water in variable depths - it avoids pollution of the swimming pool.
Two main parts - the robot and the filter system.

avalon 01 06 More traffic, noise, stress and a lack of space - most probably attributes of future cities. Briefing: Find a solution in the area between a car and a bicycle Note qualities like: sports, environment, sustainability, driving pleasure, image
Team-project with Constantin Mรถdl Semester project 2015 - duration: 4 months.
Setting trends The Requirements
There are a lot of different vehicles and concepts in the area between bicycle and car, but they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find any acceptance. So our first question was why? As a resolution we found out, that the image of this type of vehicle is really bad. To counter the poor image, we define our requirements through strong attributes like: trendsetter, leader and vanguard.
