What’s Wrong?

Limiting The hand grip is not adjustable for either left handed users or to gain extra attacking positions. This limits the user.

Unsafe The switch instantly rips the motor into high gear and will continue running even without any user interaction, causing gruesome accidents.

The disc guard is such a hassle to


adjust that most users will not take the time to situate is correctly and safely.

Adam Jonovski -

What’s Inside? The motor takes up the bulk of the grinder’s body. This cannot be changed very much without sacrificing some power. While keeping down the length of the tool itself, the cord ultimately limits the user because they are always tethered down and limited in their movements. The grinding disc is attached to the spindle by a nut. This requires a seperate tool to tighten it with which is stored in the auxillary handle. The Angle Grinder contains one

How’s it feel? Motor and battery size dictates the size of the Angle Grinder, but adjustments were made to maximize comfortability in various situations.

User feedback on overall size and fit was given based off of foam models. This allowed for a direct comparison against the existing product.

How to Print




Adam Jonovski -

Between Prints The front OLED screen can be set to different modes via smartphone when it is not being used to print.




Adam Jonovski -

How’s it Work? The only button interaction the user has with the printer opens the paper tray

A statically charged rim keeps printed papers in place after printing, yet still easily removed by the user.

As seen in current mobile printers, inkless printing uses varying degrees of heat to bring colors out of specially prepared paper. Adam Jonovski -
