Common ice chest issues: A user will not always know exactly where a food or beverage item is located inside cooler. An inch thick polycarbonate plastic sheet allows the user to see exactly where the item is, therefore eliminating time needed to find item. Polycarbonate has excellant insulation properties, as well as uv radiation resistance.

Polycarbonate is lightweight and is also scratch and impact proof.

Ice life is significantly longer.

Nomad floor has drainage holes allowing melted ice to drain to the separated reservior under the floor.

Water Reservoir

When user is ready to store away cooler, the floor can be removed for easy cleaning and then stored in the freezer to chill the ice packs.

10 watt 12V polycrystalline solar panel

Nomad is equipped with: 2 x USB Ports 2 x 100 Lumen LED light bars 1 x 150 Lumen LED strip (Lights can change color for preference)

A full dawn to dusk charge will provide the user with 10-12 hours of power.

For ideal power storing capabilities the solor panel must stay above a 50% state of charge to ensure long product life.

Power anywhere you go.

Nomad helps fight for our planet, by supporting higher recycling rates in the country.

America achieves only a 34.6% recycling rate for all plastic made.

100% of the plastic used in manufacturing for Nomad will come from recyled HDPE plastic. Using recyled HDPE plastic is not only cost efficient but also requires less fossil fuels to produce than virgin plastic does.

It’s time to make a difference.

Project Goal: Design a system of digital devices that leverages tecnology to enhance the bicyclists visibility while riding at night.

In 2014, 726 people lost their lives due to bicycle/ motor vehicle crashes

PRELIMINARY RESEARCH

USER PERSONA

Surveyed 173 bikes on UW-Stout Campus

8% 7% 3% 82%

Use both HEAD and TAIL lights. Use just HEAD lights. Use just TAIL lights. Use nothing.

What did we learn?

1 2 3

Using lights during the day is equally as important as using at night. Wearing reflective clothing or having reflectors on the bicycle is critical for maximum visibility The use of signaling to vehicles, pedestrians and other cyclists is crucial.

MICHAEL
