DUPE Pursued a business start up
Ulster Hospital Belfast Porter / Receptionist
After receiving a lot of interest in my final year project I pursued the possibility of turning my idea into a business. I spoke with construction companies, 3D printing companies, Designers, Artists and a patent lawyer. Unfortunately the viability wasnâ€™t there to carry it on and it has been shelved for the foreseeable future. October 2013 - April 2014
Scheduled work with a responsibility for drugs and patients. Working within a team of Nurses and Pharmacists. Role involved answering phones, directing the public to locations within the hospital and some administration work. 2007 - 2014 Holiday periods while at university Fulltime since June 2013

DUPE EXPERIMENTAL MATERIALS PROJECT
raw material shortages, this project explores innovative and sustainable means of material production. “Dupe” is a microbially induced casting procedure, which presents the bacterium “ bacillus pasteurii” as a method of cementing natural granular materials using minerals as a binding agent for the creation of useful objects. The process forms mineral composites at biological temperatures. The biomaterial produced is structurally comparable to concrete, yet its production produces no greenhouse gases. Concrete is responsible for 2
5 % of the worlds man made CO emissions. The biomaterial produced by this process is a stepping stone in the right direction for the reduction of these carbon emissions. Dupe aims to raise questions about the future of industrial manufacturing and illustrates the sustainable potential that the utilisation of bacillus pasteurii could have within the manufacturing industry. Whilst not providing definitive answers, this experiment aims to provide a point of departure for fresh thinking.

Through extensive research I discovered a method for creating a solid sandstone-like material using biological ingredients; I have dubbed this material “Biostone.”

PUMP CALCIUM + UREA
1. Grow bacteria in nurtrient broth (food for the bacteria). 2. Fill a water tight mould with sand. 3. Pump the bacteria solution upwards through the mould. * 4. Leave over night for bacteria to establish themselves between the sand particles. 5. Mix up a solution of calcium, urea and nutrient broth.
6. Pump the calcium solution upwards through the mould. 7. Bacteria use the calcium to create a biological cement which binds the sand together.
* Pumping the solution upwards through the mould (against gravity) produces more consistent results.
I carried out numerous experiments in the lab, testing different chemical ratios and their effects on different types of granular material.

GRUVE PRODUCT IMPROVEMENT PROJECT
the harsher more industrial looking irons on the market. Gruve aims to improve comfort and efficiency while ironing. The joint between the base plate and the body of the iron is there to give an element of flexibility, helping disperse pressure evenly during the ironing process. The soft grip and smooth rounded handle increase comfort. There are grooves in the hot plate for more effectively smoothing around buttons.
YEAR 2 / 8 WEEK PROJECT
Gruve has a soft organic aesthetic; this differentiates it from the rest of
100 + parts

Power contacts attached to spring. 3.Water tank Plastic in 2 part injection mould. 4. Handle. Injection mould Assembly Each componet attched with screws / thermo welding
Interview key points
Sore hands Sore wrists Sore arms Sore shoulders Heavy Hot work lots of steam Uncomfortable
Observation key points
Time consuming smoothing aorund buttons. Uneven application of pressure
Functional Analysis what should it be?
Industrial Sharp lines Harsh edges Pointed Similar looking Lack individuality Indistinguishable from one and other
Hard Plastic Hard handles
Association with chore.

HIGH PRICE HIGH QUALITY
LOW PRICE LOW QUALITY
CONCLUSIONS Current irons cause discomfort after long periods of use. Current irons all have a similar aesthetic and material choice. Lacking individuality. Current irons are inefficient with time.
GOALS Bring a new friendlier, more appealing aesthetic to the
product whilst improving
comfort and function.

BUTTON GROOVE for easier smoothing. Reduces multiple movementments required to smooth around buttons.
PRESSURE BALL for dispensing downward pressure equally. The upper elements of the iron move from side to side as you iron for a more comfortable working motion and a better distribution of downward force. 22
AIRO DYSON BRAND IDENTITY PROJECT
YEAR 2 / 6 WEEK PROJECT
The “Airo” is an energy efficient cordless hairdryer. The concept is aimed to increase flexibility of hairdrying for both commercial and home use. I was given the hairdryer as a product to redesign in the brand image of Dyson. I investigated the brand in order to understand their ethos, unique selling points and target market. From this I designed “Airo” a hair dryer that uses the same lithium battery technology as Dysons cordless vacumm cleaner as well as utilising Dysons impeller motor which is integral in all their products. The hairdryer is largely modelled on the Dyson Hot Fan, paying close attention to the industrial details of Dyson Products.

NOAH PROBLEM SOLVING PROJECT
YEAR 2 / 8 WEEK PROJECT
Noah is an adjustable, portable domestic flood defence gate. Climate change has led to an exponential increase in flooding over the last decade. In the UK alone 750.000 homeowners are currently at high risk of flood damage each year this number is expected to increase by 15% over the next 10 years. Noah is an efficient and manageable flood defense system that protects doorways from floodwater. This quick and easy to assemble system provides a barricade for floodwater up to a height of 400 mm. The system is more effective than sandbags and saves precious time in the event of a flood. The labour involved in forming barriers from sandbags can dissuade people from beginning the process until high-alert flood warnings have been issued, reducing the amount of time available to assure effective protection. It typically takes two men over an hour to fill and stack enough sandbags to block an average sized doorway. Noah takes just 10 minutes to assemble.

BABY AIR MAGIS BRAND IDENTITY PROJECT
for the Magis range. On reflection this outcome would need a very complex mould to allow for injection moulding. If revisiting the project I would make alterations so that the chair would come in 2 interlocking parts.
YEAR 2 / 4 WEEK PROJECT
The aim of this project was to design a new injection mouldable high chair
BALL GAME MICROSOFT / NET GADGETEER PROJECT
YEAR 2 / 1 DAY PROJECT
Using the NET Gadgeteer toolkit our team designed a simple arcade ball game. The arcade game consists of 3 target holes laser cut from MDF, each target has an LED light to indicate where to aim. We created the moving LED targets by writing C# code. Once the player strikes the lit target a sensor randomly triggers the next target to light up.
Coding, development of idea.
The aim of this short group project was to develop a business plan for a small scalable business, then create and sell our own product. We created a range of 3 cakes,
White Chocolate and Raspberry Ganache with a Popping Candy
Milk Chocolate and Strawberry Ganache with a Popping Candy
Dark Chocolate and Cherry Ganache with a Ginger Nut base.
My role within the team was to brand the business, find local cafes and restaurants willing to buy our cakes and to assist in the creation and sales of the cakes. We made a ÂŁ600 profit over the course of the 6 week project and were the most profitable team in the department.
