MESSAGING ALERT

Ikea Mutations | Projects

  • My partner and my project is a system that sends you an alert around your house to show that you got a text. This is helpful for when you leave your Phone for when you are trying to charge it. This allows you to know that someone is trying to reach you as your charging it, instead of not realizeing untill you get back to your phone. the device will know you got a txt when your fone vibrates on a platform, this would be a shelf next to an outlet. and then why want to uses a dome like decor that you can put anywhere you want and as many as you want and we would put leaces that we will creat and when someone txt you the sencor to the shelf will tell a fan inside of decor to work and the leaves will float and spin around and look like a storm. 

  • This was our first model that we used out of cardboard and cling wrap . It worked better than the glass dome because we didn’t have a top to block the fan air from escaping allowing the leaves to float. When we tried it with the glass dome the leaves didn’t float because the air couldn’t escape. Luckily we figured out that the wind from the fan had to have some sort of opening on the sculpture so that air can leave, so we created a 3d modal on rhino so that the dome can slide in the ring. After we made it it worked just as well.

    Our project started with an idea to make getting notifactions from your phone easier. My parnter and I had the idea to connect an iphone to bluetooth and link it with a light on a chair. We decided to pivet our idea to make it more interactive. We started with the idea of a vertex used to make water tornados, neitherless we got a fan and went to work. Our first model had a big flat base with just a fan, the problem with this design was the piece of paper we used to float would get stuck and clog up the fan. Also the base was to big and the glass case didnt have any venting so the air had no where to go. Our second model we improved by adding a vetting system ontop of the fan, like a grate, to stop any pieces of paper from falling down. My parnter and I also designed the entire model to be smaller. 

    • Our project is the Messgaing Alert Device 
    • The problem we are sloving is to help with being alerted to when you have a text or someone is calling you, without having to carry around your phone with you around the house.
    • Wiht the messaging alert device you are able to leave your phone on a charing pad, when you a get your phone will vibrate which will send a signal to our alert model. This model is an interactive way to alert you, it a small vortex that creates a small wind tornado with either, leaves, flower pedals or snow. 
    • The design of our project was based off a wind turbin and a large water vortex machine. My partner and I developed a smaller version of a wind turbine. 
    • We relized further into our design that we needed a fliter and a vent to help the leaves blow more freely. We were able to produce a 3D printed vet and filter to alow air to vent through and help create the tornado we needed.
    • The major complucation that we had was figuring out the venting

  • My partner and i were thought of an idea to signal someone when they get a text while there charging there done. We thought of lights that turn different colors into a patter, an or an alarm that plays different music or a specific noise, but we thought there were already things like that. Then we had the idea of making it look like a snow globe but instead of using water we use wind from a fan. We also had the idea of being able to have a seasonal theme so we can have for winter snow, for spring flowers, and for fall leaves.  When the fan turns on the objects would fly in the container notifying that someone got a message.

    We based our modal after an Ikea product which originally was a decor and made it useful. The way it works is the is a little shelf that fits the size of a phone next to whatever outlet that the person is using and the shelf senses the vibration. That way the person knows they need to respond to a notification. And also that a person wouldn’t have to listen to an annoying sound ever time they got a text or look at a blinking light.
