Weekly Update – Wednesday, April 13th

Over the course of this project, I have considered time and time again doing something which I am entirely unsure of how it will be received: contacting the designer of the project which inspired my own. Jakub Pollág is a graduate of the Royal College of Art in London, and is the co-founder of Studio Deform, a company specializing in product and furniture design, interior and exhibition architecture and creative advertisement.

This last week, I spent a great deal of time contemplating my design, and in which direction I wanted to take it. Do I want to complicate the design by adding variable motor speed, a rechargeable battery, and some form of user feedback, or do I want to keep the mechanical design simple and straightforward, and focus more on the aesthetics and overall functionality of the project? I decided that I needed some form of support from an individual who had already went through what I was currently going through, and so I sent an email to Jakub. In the email, I asked about the circuit design of his system, and what motor he had spec’d to meet his needs, and he got back to me surprisingly quickly (within 12 hours). Jakub informed me of the simplicity of his own design, being that the circuit is only a 9V battery, a DC motor with an operating voltage between 7V-15V, and a switch. This insight from Jakub informed my decision to keep my first prototype simple, as to focus on the aesthetics and functionality of the design before moving on to bigger, better, and more complex iterations. I have since been in fairly close correspondence with Jakub, and I hope to share my own project experiences with him.

  • I am so glad to have found the site, it’s toally the thing my friend and I have been dreaming for. The up to date info on the website is beneficial and needed and will assist me twice a week. It looks like the site gained a lot of details about subjects on the site and the other hyper links and information also show it. I’m not typically on the internet most of the time but when I get an opportunity im more often than not avidly hunting for this type of knowledge and things closely related to it. I have one of my family members that have also assumed a liking in this because of what I have gathered about it and they are more than likely going to be visiting this website since it’s such an incredible discovery. I am also interested in government issues and how to deal with the drastic changes in government. this month I have also been studying liebesroman baby

    It sounds like simple is the way to go. It’s super cool that Jakub was so helpful and quick to respond. Having the input of someone experienced in the project is definitely a big help. Hopefully this will get you the info you need to pick out a motor. Another option is to just grab a 9V DC motor from the ITLL project depot and give it a shot. Could save you a bit of time.
