SINGAPORE: A special doorknob for the elderly, an automated table—top cleaner and a motion sensor glove to help in sign language, are some of the projects on display at the annual showcase of the Nanyang Polytechnic’s (NYP) School of Design.
Held at the National Library Board, the projects by students from the Diploma in Industrial Design, Diploma in Space & Industrial Design and Diploma in Visual Communication aim to help people do simple daily chores.
’BOT’, for example, is an automated table—top cleaner to help restaurants increase productivity by doing away with cleaners.
Another example is AID+, a new take on the first—aid kit meant to make the kit idiot—proof and easily portable for outdoors activities.
Shaun Seah, a diploma in Industrial Design student at NYP, said: "The in—house infographics that’s located inside the box teaches you what to use and how to use it at the same time and what need to be replenished in case of — let’s say you are missing a bandage or missing some other important tools that you would not have noticed when you are looking at the kit on your own.
"Another key feature is the lighting system. The lighting system acts as a warning device and a way for you too illuminate the place you are working on. For example if you are injured at night the only light source is your flashlight or handphone."
