Based on previous watch design of Samuel Jerichow, you can tell that he’s a fan of lines, that’s why most of his watch designs involve lines to tell the time. Vein watch features 4 digit analog display inspired by LED watch concept, the numbers from 1 to 9 are located on the display similar the one you see on the analog watch. The number 0 is located at the 12h position, therefore, 10 and 11 are not used. This is where the appearance of vein comes to play, it starts from the top left corner of the main display then splits up into branches of 4 capillaries to represent the hours and minutes of current time. You need to read the numbers in the order in which the capillaries branch off. The flows of those capillaries that run through leave the display on the lower right corner.
To be honest, we’re having a hard to read the time, hopefully Jerichow can come up with upgraded version that is easier to read. Having said that, Jerichow understands that the reading method is can be pretty challenging, so, he tries to ease things up with the help mode. If you use this mode, all numbers are lit up, there’s a little center dot to locate the ends of the capillaries with a little arrow to guide where to start reading. AM/PM indicator is also displayed to let you know are you in 12h mode or 24h mode. Yes, it can be a bit tricky to read the time since indicators and numbers are displayed in 45-degree in order to follow the direction of the electro vein light flows.
The design integrates insulin delivery with patient’s lifestyle by amalgamating the existing technology advancement with fashion. This Insulin Delivery System is characterized by a closed loop delivery of insulin, achieved by two inter-connected units, namely The Monitoring Unit and The Diffusing Unit. There is a Bio-sensor attached to the Monitoring Unit which detects the blood glucose level and the pulse rate transcoding it into the requisite quantum of insulin dosage which then slowly diffuses into the patient’s body as per the need at the then given point of time.
The entire system is rendered pain-free as the insulin delivery is by a micro-needle array wherein the diameter of the needles is smaller than that of a mosquito’s probe. The monitoring unit of each patient is paired with the Endocrinologist’s system. It can be further paired with four other devices to which regular alarms or feedback regarding any unusual fluctuation in the patient’s blood glucose level or pulse rate may be sent. The Monitoring Unit has an embedded GPS facility that sends intimation to the paired devices about the location of the patient with a tolerance of 20 meters, in event of an emergency.
Designer : Devina Kothari
This system is highly useful to infants, juvenile, immobile, unconscious, handicapped and dependent patients or those under intensive care as it monitors, diffuses and alarms simultaneously without frequent human intervention. The system of devices is self administered with minimal skills or training and across a broad segment of patients.
Veilo is a concept trashcan that has been designed in a futuristic and simple way to provide a sense of decorative sophistication. The side fabric covers of this green bin are customizable as per the taste of individual users. The bin features a smart way to reuse the plastic grocery bags as trash bags and unlike traditional trashcans, the open loop and open body of this bin allow the user to remove trash bags easily without wrestling against gravity and friction. In the backside, the bin has a bag compartment where extra grocery bags can be stored and its spring-loaded system pushes the bags upward, allowing easy refill and retrieval just like a conventional tissue box.
