“In Haiti, of primary school age children are not enrolled in school”

bike tires? commonly not recycled prevalent in Haiti (used for strikes) easy to cut and shape!

“Kids are required to go to school wearing shoes” Jennifer Francois

“Even the poorest people would want to have a shoe [rather than a sandal].”

Fabrice Marcelin

No Shoes = No Education bike tires were easy to manipulate, readily available and very durable!

In order to make a simple shoe I referred to medieval shoe templates to construct simple prototypes

model iteration first 3 models original 3 models explored different ways to construct the shoe and address the fastening system.

one template, too weak

Initial renders and research on kid’s shoes made us focus on an

easy fastening system and heel support.

inner liner = more structure

3 templates, stronger

rubber opening, too fragile

button clip

just right!

SKIN REMOTE how can a remote control adapt to you?

idea:

most control remotes are square and have confusing interfaces. how can form facilitate a more tactile experience?

A wide front and bulky handle proofed successful!

form refinement

A gentle slope was determined to work best for less stress

CHANNELS VOLUME The interface responds to simple gestural motions. the sensitive area reacts like a laptop track pad

casing of recyclable plastic trackpad incorporated

vs.

easy to pick up

operates on radial frequency uses 2 AAA batteries

Any part of the skin can potentially be used!!
