Advanced 3D printing
Aro is flexible and flexible prototypes are not trivial. In order to build fast concept I learnt how to make perfect flexible prints and moulding using silicones and polymers like TPU and TPE.
Embedded system & App coding
To make test I co-designed an application and supervised the internal code of the device.
Product design & Communication
Aro is not just a wristband or bracalet, is one of the first exclusive full-haptic concept. Touch-sense responds differently to sight, so we have taken special care to make the device comfortable and pleasant to the touch. In addition, its simplicity and the presence of tactile references make it compatible and easy to use for blind people.
Haptics is an unknown world for many and specially for a student. In order to understand it perfectly, I have conducted extensive research, tests and tests on blind people. On the other hand, the haptic market is also very peculiar and we continue to research and adapt to the challenges it poses.
