The bachelor thesis (ISIA Urbino, supervisor: Luciano Perondi) investigates the problem of accessibility within the graphical representation of space and takes the form of a tactile artefact accessible to the blind and visually impaired. The goal is to make the geography of an area available both in economic as well as content terms, thanks to the combination of a low-cost printing technique and a specific representative approach. The project consists of a set of tactile maps and a research programme that documents the design process and the first phase of testing with blind people.
The project has been delineated upon the observation of methods of transport for migrants in the Mediterranean Sea. The trans-ship appears to be one of the most critical moments of the rescuing process, as very often migrants risk to fall off in the sea and sink.This project aims to propose a solution for this issue, allowing a safe trans-ship method.The idea proposes a plank designed for Coast Guard’s boats. It allows a safe and organised transfer of one person per time it requires simply one operator, instead of four, and it is made with cheap material that doesn’t require complex production
Along with the challenge between the players Wind Turbine game demonstrates how the wind power transforms into the electricity that is used everyday.Also tells that how the energy can be renewable by simulating the way the wind turbines work.Recycling Bin game shows waste recyling process.Helping the kids to be able to categorize the recyclable wastes and showing that they can be valued again.In that sense the project arouses environment friendly consciousness and sensibility to environment issues.Leads new generations to adapt this recycling,renewing and saving culture.
In some kinds of situations of the fire that passageway has been blocked in accident. No matter what you do, you cannot escape from the fire through the door. To find a solution for trapped person get away form the fire quickly, the team find the point in window frame redesign. X-Space is redesign of the window frame including rotational structure holder. When fire coming up, all family members can easily get out of the fire through the X-Space avoiding the injury from the fire and smoke behind the outer wall.
SteriPak is a kit that converts end of life gas cylinders into autoclaves for sterilising medical and baby equipment. Each kit costs less than 10USD. SteriPak empowers the community as the conversion itself provides work for locals that does not rely on specialised equipment. Many clinics in sub Saharan Africa are forced to reuse surgical equipment like scalpels and forceps due to their expense. SteriPak only requires water and a heat source to achieve safe, consistent sterilisation of this equipment to lower infant mortality rates and increase overall quality of life.
A mobile, extendable, modular and multi-functional wagon that can be used as a portable refugee shelter when towed along by a single adult human being. It has a compact configuration that can accommodate a single adult person, and it can fully extend its telescopic slide out sections to provide sleeping accommodations for up to four people. In addition, the wall panels can be detached to allow its frame to conjoin with similar Rush units to create a much larger and shared accommodation.
