RADHASOAMI DAYAL KI DAYA RADHASOAMI SAHAY

Hello! I am Nilay Bhandari, a final year student of product design at MIT’s Institute of Design, Pune, India.

Presented here is a compilation of my work done during the span of four years of learning design. It is my belief that by virtue, designers must be generalists. We must first respond to our primary purpose as problem solvers. My approach to design is thus need driven and research based. I like mind maps that span entire softboards and are embellished with post its! Therein lies my strength because it leads to a well understood problem.

I am currently looking for full time job placement

I am looking forward to this venture as an opportunity to enhance my understanding of design in the real world and contributing to the organisation with my effort, energy and enthusiasm.

AFTER TRANSFER

As the reservoir is raised to a height, water flows down to the platform, which inflates. The valve is closed and the reservoir, now empty, is dropped down. The seat height is thus raised to match the bed height.

The valave is opened so that water drains down from the platform to the reservoir.The platform deflates and the seat height thus, is dropped down to wheelchair height.

lifelines

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ Lagori

{ so..the new game OBJECTIVE Player A:To get your rubber bands on to the structure to make your arrangement by performing tasks

define a new task each time

Player B:To make it difficult for the other player to perform tasks by defining difficult tasks

“get the element of physical activity, so true of the original game, in the board game”

DECISIVE RESULT Player with more number of ‘L’s wins. In case of a tie, number of +1s is taken into account

colour:difficulty level die throw decides no. of lagoris broken: no. of tasks to perform:game begins

bhandari.nilay@gmail.com | +91 9822144333

“Removal and placement of rubbber bands is ritualistic”

Full scale model: MDF + Wood planks + Rubberwood + Bamboo

WHAT IT DOES encourages physical activity as part of the game

Age group: 7-9 yrs | Ideally, for kids to play with their parents

learning through object identification colour association stimulation of cognitive skills task cards allow for novelty, flexibility the child discovers space in a new way

As the knob is rotated, it rotates a drive with tracks. Each LED from the array makes contact with the track in the 40th week position. For all other positions, only those LEDs make contact which together make up the form of the corresponding week while all other LEDs are insulated. A connection from the knob goes to a binary counter that displays the week count.
