ProJEcT Full anaesthetic is not a pleasant experience and follows the same procedure regardless of patient’s age. Even adults find it unpleasant, but for kids this experience can be terrifying as they are more emotional and not always understand why they have to go trough this frightening process.

TEAM janis Beinerts Lars Sundelin Sebastian Aumer Trieuvy Luu The main challenge is to ensure kids don’t feel stressed, breath deep and slowly during the anesthetize procedure

As a result, it is almost impossible to be in control of the drilling angle and drill hole depth. The new design ensures users have full control over these measures, by having an integrated assistance ruler. With a guided ruler, users can be confident and work much faster and precise. The main challenge is to provide users full control of the drilling process.

Size variations AEro / wAtER HARVEStER 46


Aero comes in 2 sizes. The Aero-mini version ideally fits to the private balconies or indoors watering. It has integrated water hose that can be pulled out during the watering process, so plants are easier to reach. Water pressure can be turned on and off directly from nozzle, so water is not spilled out when moving from one watering spot to another. If house is located in insufficient sun area or in shadow, Aero-mini can be connected to house electric grid by cable to power the water harvesting process. Aero-mini can produce up to 20L of water per day, which is enough to support approximately 5m2 of vegetable gardening. The interaction and water level indications are shown on the top surface.
