MFA THESIS PROJECT / RESQUBE


RESQUBE MFA Thesis project / 2011-1012

RESQUBE is an overboard rescue device for recreational boaters. This device can help boaters to rescue overboard drowning victims fast and effective. The goal of my project is to move beyond current rescue limitations and develop rescue devices. I want to explore how the rescue process can be improved in order to increase the safety of the rescuer and the survival chance of the victim.

5


RECREATIONAL BOATING A lot of people like open water activities, such as fishing, boating, and sailing, especially when the weather turns warm. However, there are many dangers that go along with these activities such asdrowning and hypothermia. The most common emergency situation for recreational boating is when a person falls overboard.

6


Prob lem st atem ent Water rescue is a dangerous and physically tiring mission. Current rescue processes mostly count on human energy to rescue victims. This increases the safety risks of the rescuer during the rescue process.

H yp ot hesis If a product can be designed to assist rescuers during rescue process, then it can increase not only the survival chance of the victims, but also the rescuer’s safety.

Need s Improve safety of water rescues. Reduce human energy consumption during rescues. Increase the efficiency of rescues. Increase the survival chances of the victims.

7


Pro b l e m In the current rescue process, the boat can not be too close to the victim in order to prevent collding or runing over the victim. The rescuer needs to deliver the rescue device physically to rescue the victim such as throwing a life ring or a rescue rope. It is difficult to deliver precisely the current rescue device to the victim. Therefore, the rescuer may not be able to rescue the overboard victim effectively.

D e s ign co n cept My concept is to deploy the rescue device before approaching the victim. The shape of the rescue device deflects the water and moves out from the boat during the process of approaching.Therefore, when the boat is near the victim the rescue device is already in the water ready to rescue the drowning victim.This rescue device not only increase the rescue distance but also shortens the rescue time.

Mockup Testing / User Feedback • The size of the product is too big. • The product should be horseshoe shaped for the victim to wear.

Key Finding • The size of fin should be bigger than 18x1.5 inches. • Understand the geometrical relationship between fin and pulling point. 1/4 PULLING POINT

Mockup Testing / User Feedback • Could have bigger back support • Should have larger opening for users • Every edge should be rounded • Should have longer armrests

MFA THESIS PROJECT / RESQUBE


Mockup Testing / User Feedback • When the opening faces the current, it catches too much water and decreases performance. • The mockup doesn’t have enough buoyancy to float device completely.

Mockup Testing / User Feedback • Changing the opening to the side could increase the size of opening space to fit different users. • Could design the surface to prevent catching too much water. • Could have a secure strap to prevent victim falling out from the opening during the rescue process.

Mockup Testing / User Feedback • The fin could be smaller to provide comfort to the user.

• The shape could be more hydrodynamic in order to increase its stability when it is moving on the water.

Mockup Testing / User Feedback • The fin could be integrated into the shape to provide comfort to the user.

Final Design

High reflective tape increases visual contact during the rescue process.

The narrow rope holes increase the friction to stabilize the rope.

The surface deflects water to help the device be navigating on the water.

The rope bag stores and prevents tangling the rope.

The strap allows the rescuer to hold the bag more easily.

The bumper is designed to protect the device during handling.

The rope attachment hole secures the rope tie on the device.

The grove stabilizes the rope from rotating.

The handle helps the rescue to retrieve to rope easier.

The carabiner connects on the railing and provides a strong connection between the device and the boat.

BIKE R ACK Product design project / 2009

A bicycle rack should not only be a place to park a bile, but it should also secure and take good care of the bike. This design can secure both fram and wheels at the same time to prevent from getting stolen and taken apart. Therefore, the user can have more confidence to park their bicycle in the public space.

57


BIKE COMMINUTING

Many people like bike comminuting. It can be a fun, dependable, low-cost, and energy-efficiency mode of transportation. Bicycling also burns about 500 calories an hour, so bikers can commute and stay fit at the same time. It can also release stress and improve bikers’ health.

58


Prob lem st atem ent Many bikers lock their bikes on the bike rack when they park their bikes in public spaces. Some bikes even use more than one lock to secure their bike. However, many bikers still get their bike stolen or taken apart.

H yp ot hesis If a product can be designed not only assist the bikers to park the bike but also can eliminate the risk of bicycle theft then the bikers can feel more secure and confident to park their bike.

P ENDULUM CLOCK Product design project / 2009

Pendulum clock is a clock design not only showing the time but also delivering an idea “Time is never standing still.� Its appearance was inspired by the movement of the pendulum which visualizes the time never stops and reminds the user that every second is a treasure.

69


TIME Tme runs vary fast and never stands still. Some people manage their time well, but some people waste their time extravagantly. It is very importand to remind people to use their time wisely and effectively.

70


Pe n d u l u m Antique clocks use the pendulum design to power the clock. When pendulum moves from side to side, it represent the movement of the time. I use the outline of the pandulum’s movement as a inspiration for my design.
