Industrial design hacking cat | Hackaday
Join us on Wednesday September 8 at noon Pacific for the Industrial design hacking cat with Eric Strebel!
At Hackaday, we celebrate all kinds of hardware hacks, and we try not to judge by looks. After all, every product starts on the breadboard, or as a prototype built with hot glue and duct tape. What is important is to make it work, at least in the beginning. But there comes a time when you need to think about how to make your project look like something people want to use, how to position controls and displays in a logical and appealing way, and how to make sure your stuff can. actually be built. .
Turning a project into a product is the job of an industrial designer. Almost everything you use, from the toothbrush by your sink to the car you drive in at work, bears the hallmarks of industrial design, some with more success than others. Eric Strebel has been doing industrial design for years, and he continues to give us a steady diet of design tips and tricks throughout. his popular YouTube channel. He will stop at Hack Chat to learn a little more about the principles of industrial design and how you can make your projects look as good as they work.
