Graduation Project

"Instead of thinking what to build. Building in order to think." - Tim Brown Rollean Design Projcect was designed as my graduation project in Product Design at M i n g C h u a n U n i v e r s i t y i n Taiwan. Through the observation and research, we discovered t h e f a c t t h at m o s t t r av e le r s have difficulties to pull their luggage out of the baggage claim.

9:Graduation Project

Design Introduction In terms of the difficulty of lifting l u g g a g e f ro m b a g g a g e ca ro u s e l , w e developed a new design from the original carousel by adding 10 cm diameter steel balls that are able to rotate 360° in the w all fr ame of the carousel. That way the luggage can lean on the c i rc u l a r w a l l o f c a ro u s e l w h i c h c a n distribute the weight of the luggage, then when the steel balls start rolling, it will trigger the movement of the belt to carry the luggages out.

Research In order to gain informations about baggage claim, we conducted our own research by recording, taking pictures, interviewing travelers at Singapore Changi Airport and Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport.

Problems According to information we gathered and results of analysis, we found out that "people pull their luggages out from baggage claim" this procedure have several problems. Tr a v e l e r s h a v e t o a v o i d t h e l u g g a g e from hitting the frame of carousel by raising their arms to shoulder-hign, and ev e n t u a l ly t a ke o u t t h e i r l u g g a g e s i n a clumsy way, which is especially hard for elder and children.

Solution way...

...Solution way

Features T h e w a l l of t h e ca ro u s e l is easy to be worn and teared since it sustains the weight of the luggage for a long period of time and it os hard to renew and maintain. T h e re f o re , w e a d d e d t h e 3 6 0 ° ro l l i n g b a l l s i n t h e frame in order to slow down abrasion. Besides, this makes it more convenient to maintain.

Tr a v e l e r s c a n l e a n t h e luggage on the circular wall of carousel and carry their luggages following the curved wall to drop.

The 77° carousel wall shortens the distance between traveler and the belt, giving travelers m o re c o n v e n i e t w a y t o claim and drop luggages.

The 360° steel balls are c a p a b le t o m o v e f re e ly without any interference to the belt, which can be a great support to the travelers.

17:Presspiral Design Project

THE INNOVATION OF MEDICAL CARE Presspiral Design Project According to the statistics, 91% of nurses have been hurt by syringe needles each year. To our surprise, there are over 30% of people facing this accident after syringe needle been used. T h e re f o re w e d e c i d e d t o s u b m i t a s a f e r recycling bin of syringe needles that prevent medical personnel from facing needlestick injury anymore.

Presspiral One press, Safer than ever.

Syringe needle had been Used previosly.

What nurses said... According to the information we collected from nurses, there are few steps we found out why can not cycling bin be smarter for the user?

1 Open the cover


The cover is broke

2 Slide the syringe

Why not?

Press the syringe



The opening is big

Seal the bin with paper tape


Bin was fallen, needles came out


The tape loosen


If? Sharp and straight

Spiral and safe


The syringe needle becomes a spiral form and the sharp will bend into the center.

Respond to different diameter of syringe, the opening uses the appearance of stairs.

The 38° angle, ensure each user has a clear site. 38

Its appearance makes it easy to pile.

Use-method and interior

Choose the right place and insert the needle into the opening.

Press the syringe to motivate the first gear.


The second gear will be motivated by the first one, that turns the needle into a spiral form.

The spiral needle would fall down from the second gear.

25:Green Design Project



People now adays pursuing more natur al ways to solve problems, it's not only could be healthier to our body but also good for the environment. According to the research, I found there are so many MOSQUITO REPELLENT products are not natural, so I decided to create a natural mosquito repellent.


According to the research, I discovered there are a lot of natural ways to solve mosquito issue. One of them is by using dried wormwood. HOW and Why I choose this natural material as my main concept... Organic Dried Wormwood are n a t r u a l , a n d I c h o o s e C y p re ss wood as the frame, and its shape I w o u l d l i ke t o g i v e p e o p le a n natural image.



Take out of the container inside from Cypress wood frame.


Put about 30~40g dried wormwood into the container, and replace them each week.


After filling up the container with wormwood, then put container back inside. Except put this natural mosqhito repellent to anywhere you want, or it could also be hung up.
