A New Insulin Delivery Device

 


Krystalin
 


 
  Krystalin is a futuristic insulin delivery concept. The concept is one of the 10 winners for ignite diabetes challenge sponsored by SANOFI. Their challenge was to design a concept for the next generation disposable delivery device for insulin. The design was concentrated in identifying what are the major problems a diabetic patient faces in the current insulin dispensing device. Fear of needle, difficulty in self-administration, tracking of dosage and difficulty in operating are few of the problems they have identified. The latest tech was also identified and envisioned along.
 
  Krystalin uses an array of crystal insulin which are grown into micro needles of size 450-550 microns over thin films. These non-invasive insulin patches (size 1cm x 1cm, equivalent to 10 units of insulin) are pain free and comparable to the mosquitoes needle sizes and can be used by both type1 and type2 diabetes. Once this patch is applied on to the skin, the crystal shaped insulin crystal gets dissolved and immediate effect occurs to the patient at subcutaneous level. The patch after being dissolved, the needles become blunt and can be disposed as it is no longer a bio waste.
 
  The case in which these patches are packed can measure the Diabetes glucose level non-invasively. This is done with the help of short range spectroscopy of glucose molecules present in the blood. This is useful in suggesting the patient about the dosage to be taken. 
 
  The device is robust and is easy to carry and has storage unit which is helpful when on travel. E-ink based display is used to add reminders and display glucose levels. It is an accessory more than a medical device. Kystalin is a concept which helps all ages, kids and old aged to operate it easily with no fear and pain.

Lucas González, Modifying Designs

CAWA by Lucas González



  CAWA is a water jar conceived under a new perspective. It’s an object that answers two simple questions. Why do we serve as we serve? Why are pitchers the way they are?  Traditionally pitchers were made to transport water up and down, and this defined the shape they had. Nowadays, pitchers have their own place in homes, and this may change things.

  Since the function of the pitcher is no longer to transport, a revision of the object is perfectly possible. Taking the concept of gesture as the leitmotif of Lucas' project he developed a pitcher in which pouring water is reduced to a simple movement of the arm, making the act of serving more gentle and effortless for everyone. Since the way we use it has changed, so will its shape. This enabled Lucas to do a new aesthetic approach to the object.
 
  The result is a very simple but functional object that provides the user a new experience when serving water.

Toothbrush Toy by Quentin Leroy

 



  Like a toy, the toothbrush is a little man with 2 arms that allow to put it on a glass or on the ground.  The relief of the face cleans the tongue.  When the bristles are worn, the little man hair's become tousled.  The kid just has to change the head by the one he loves. 


Green Light by Quentin Leroy

The E-bike by Chris Connor

E-bike by Chris Connor



  Connor Wood Bicycles, LLC was founded by Chris Connor in 2012 to build wood bicycles that beautifully combine form and function.  Chris has been for many years a woodworker in Denver and an enthuthiastic cyclist, so building wood bicycles came as a stunning realization that he could bring the two together.  For many years he has built classical guitars, furniture, and boats.  

  Chris has a love and respect for the beauty, strength and durability of wood.  Connor Wood Bicycles uses a unique combination of sustainably harvested American White Ash, Black Walnut and Kevlar in curved composite laminations throughout its bikes. 
 


E-bike by Chris Connor 



  The E-bike is an alternative form of transportation today thanks to Chris Connors.  What is an e-bike? They're like all conventional bikes, in which you still pedal and ride it like any other bicycle, but it's electric.  It has a motor and a battery in order to assist the rider.   It doesn't require throttle and it also knows when to provide power and when to regeneratively recharge while you're riding.  This bike gives 50 miles of riding range and an elegant rack to take your things with you.  

 The other bikes Chris Connor makes are minimalist in appearance, typically having a simple leather saddle and grips, a single speed or two speed internal gear hub, coaster brakes, and 29er wheels.

San by Parashar Agravat



Parashar Agravat is a current student in the National Institute of Design in India.  

San is a simple product with some value added over the traditional ring spanners.  There are certain features of the product.  One is the nesting form that allows three particular sizes to nest within each other.  Second, is the elongation of the arm in order to provide with more torque to tighten bolts or open them easily. 

One can also use the spanners individually allowing the user to decide the manner in which its more comfortable.  Along with the functional qualities it is aesthetically pleasing.  Making it an exquisite gadget that you would want to have in your toolkit.

Songs are cork headphones: lightweight (only 64 grams!), nonallergic, resilient, sound insulating, moisture proof, soft touching.  They are folding and adjustable. Easy to repair and dismiss thanks to an assembly based on the compressibility of cork.  No glue, no excessive upholstery, no crazy plastic shapes, no screws.  Just cork, simple electric parts, steel, foam.
