"RIP Gudetama" - Protect Your Egg
"This is really creative. I have never seen a design like this before."
- Our professor Steven Dow
In a prototyping design class, we used a classic but interesting physical experiment to practice making physical prototypes-prototyping an egg drop device.
We made 8 prototypes and tested each before we get to our final design, which combines the design of parachute, badminton, plunger, cushion structure and balance to create a device. This device used the limited materials provided in class-a challenge-to protect our egg from crashing when it falls from less than 12 feet height (about 3.65 meters).
I was the main producer of the final design and the group leader.
