With the background and preliminary work complete, the remaining work in this contract is concentrated in constructing and presenting the proposed design. After the proposed design is modelled on AutoCAD, a physical prototype will be constructed. The prototype will require testing and improvement over several iterations. Upon the completion of the prototype, it will serve as a visual aid to the project presentation.
In this essay, I will introduce what I did in this semester of this course, and also will outline what I learnt from this course and in the process of the design and prototype making. Meanwhile, I will reflect what I would to do if I met the iteration of design and prototyping for the same problem space. And in the last part of this essay, a reflection analysis of the project, which related to the theoretical context provided by the lecture material and self-directed research will be provided in this essay.
He co-founded Handspring in 1998, and created the Visor, “whose thrift and expandability forced other makers to be more competitive. Visor, is among the fastest–selling computer hardware products ever” (Willis, 2001).
Since my school days, I was always curious about how automated gadgets and devices work. Various TV programs gave me some insight into the world of electronics. Vocational electronics course in my higher secondary education acquainted me to the basics of electronics. After starting my undergraduate course in electronics and tele-communication engineering, basic courses like ‘Basic Electronics Engineering’, ‘Solid State Devices and Circuits’ and ‘Digital Logic Design’ gave me a deeper understanding of the building blocks of electronics like diodes, transistors and ICs. Not only did these courses managed to partially sate this curiosity that I had since my childhood, but also inspired me to explore the world of electronics further.
Innovation and ingenuity are pertinent to the success of any modern piece of technology. Maintaining viability requires thinking outside the box and linking usefulness with modernism; making it appeal to the target market.
Universal Serial Bus (USB) — an external connectivity communications technology for connecting peripherals such as mice, keyboards, modems, joysticks, video, etc. to Macintosh and PC computers. It has increased support commercially and privately since 1996. It is complex with closely all new PC’s, it is rapidly replacing PC serial ports, and it’s focused by some of the largest manufacturers in the electronics industry, it’s expected that USB will become a factor in the industrial, selling and data gathering worlds
It’s pretty evident that technology is accelerating at a rapid pace and humans are becoming further dependent on it for every purpose. And with every new day, software development is becoming more and more crucial since the demand for software is fast rising from every corner imaginable. In fact, almost every machine that we use can be a
In this phase of product development, the PD team had a challenge that they had to create a product that required minimal computer competency. Meanwhile, they were asked to include high-quality multimedia components (Case Studies, 2002).
Prototyping can augment this process because it converts these basic, yet sometimes intangible, specifications into a tangible but limited working model of the desired information system. Baderman Island’s user feedback gained from developing a physical system that the users can touch and see facilitates an evaluative response that the analyst can employ to modify existing requirements as well as developing new ones. Some Advantages of Prototyping:
Robotics helps with many things such as military services, space exploration, and fighting crime. The Arduino is able to do these things too. An Arduino is an open-source prototyping platform and can perform many things. 5th graders at ODC/Kemps were challenged with a task. This task was to make the Arduino perform a service, in this case, a security system, for a specific group of people, then, state the service, how it would improve the quality of life, and the social, political, and economic implications.
Intel, also known as Integrated Electronics, is a company that manufactures and sells various types of electronic equipment and hardware. It was founded by Gordon Moore and Robert Noyce in 1968 and has since grown to be a commonly used consumer brand. Intel must ensure that its products are consistently well-made, especially when its products affect the consumer’s experience with the technology he or she is using. Because Intel must implement quality in a wide variety of products, the best practice for the company is to have a physical separation between its departments and to focus on the quality of each individual aspect of its product creation; this will allow each department to specialize in their work functions and allow the company to separate each task effectively.
One week I created graphical paintings on the computer, the next week I would take it apart and see what could make it faster. However, in recent years, the public doesn't have the same enthusiasm that I had as a child when looking at innovation. The public already has products that do everything that they need them to do, the problem is that companies continue to charge the same amount of money for the same product year after year. Intel, a huge processor manufacturer for computers, currently holds 82% of the world’s market share for consumer processors while their competitor, AMD, holds the remaining 18%. Since 2006, Intel won most of the market share due to their advantage in computing performance, but the innovation by Intel has plateaued in 2011 as AMD has done nothing to strike back. Since Intel’s sales have been higher than ever and consumers are hard pressed to find a better solution, why change? It was important that I saw this within my high school days, as I sought to create the innovation. My high school introduced the Project Lead the Way program, which was to teach high schoolers engineering through the use of computing. Thanks to miniature-itx motherboards, I have been able to pack huge amounts of computing power into a tiny case. Not only that, but I have also been able to create a prototype case that extends the case for more powerful
In Intini’s article about the future of technology from a standpoint of the past, he illustrates key characteristics that were being researched at the time, and were to be implemented in the future. Not only were his predictions about the use of these technologies accurate, but moreover he emphasizes how important the new technology is in our everyday lives. He clearly states, “So attention now turns to those bright ideas and prototypes springing from the research and development labs with the potential to reshape your home, your commute, your office, and your downtime. Consider this a preview of the not-too-distant future” (Intini, 2007, para. 2). It is from this statement that not only will we see that the author’s predications are accurate
Technologies are getting more and more advanced day by day, as if we would never know what technologies will become by the next day morning, it grow fast and it keeps on changing. We could not deny that today’s technology changes our world and our way of living, most of the new devices that are invented are replacing the old ones, just as those phones with a physical keypad design are replaced with our new touch screen smart phone today, these changes occur rapidly. In this technology leading world, have you ever wondered, what are the next incredible devices will be invent? In this research report, I am going to introduce you, a brand new technology that were recently invented by Google, a device which is yet
The field is of developing significance because of the expanding dependence of PC frameworks in most societies. Computer frameworks now incorporate a wide assortment of "keen" gadgets, including cell phones, TVs and little gadgets as a major aspect of the Internet of Things – and systems incorporate the Internet and private information systems, as well as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and different remote system.
