DESIGN OBJECTIVE The objective of this poroject was to design, create, and develop an attatchable accessory device for your smartphone


SCAVANGER HUNT

I seeked out objects for inspiration by going to thrift stores, dollar stores, and finding things around my house.


SCAVANGER HUNT

Through the items that I chose, I was able to find inpiration through the forms, and functioning features of each object.

Attatchable microphone

Sleep monitor device

Messege in a bottle

Photo mirror port

Wearable sleep bracelet

Wearable phone charger


BRAINSTORMING

During this brainstorming session, I explained my design direction and had my peers give out individual ideas on sticky notes.


IDEATION SKETCHES

Here I explored multiple concepts after finding a design direction I wanted to pursue twoards.


IDEATION SKETCHES


MOCK-UPS

Here I made physical mock ups from my sketches. I was able to explore the size, shape, and overall fit to each wearable.

PROCESS

Using the bandsaw, mill, drumsander, and laser cutter, I created my final model using modulan for the body and acrylic for the screen.


APPERANCE MODEL

Showing as a bracelet and how it is worn on the phone


IN USE AND SCREEN FUNCTION When worn on the wrist, time, heart rate, calories burned, and step count are displayed on the screen. When converted to charging use, the display screen will automatically show as a battery icon which will track the amount of battery left in the charger.


THE PROBLEM One of the issues that many users face with typical portable chargers are the inconvenience of carrying them. Many of the factors that contribute to this probelm include the bulkiness of the port, the weight, and the added chord that is required to be seperatley carried around.

A portable phone charger that also acts as a wearable to reduce the amount of items carried. Great for on the go adventures and activities that require light packing.

THE SOLUTION


HOW IT CHARGES This device functions with the use of inductive charging. It works through the backside of the charger and onto the back surface of the phone by an electromagnetic field which transfers energy from one object to another. Created for the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X, wireless charging is used, so there is no need for a chord or adapter.

WHY WIRELESS? This special trait makes it easier to slide on and off the phone. This newly added feature of iPhones will possibly be the future of charging for all cellular devices.

BRACELET BATTERY

The charger is battery operated, so in order to charge, open up the bracelet and lay it flat on its bottom. Charges through another wireless charging device.
