CR1

The CR1 is a carbon fiber wheelchair that is fully customizable to the user's individual specifications and preferences. The unique, dual-angle front end was designed to follow the lines of the user's body, allowing them to get closer to objects for improved accessibility and maneuverability in tight spaces. The aerodynamic tube profile and its orientation were designed to improve strength, user comfort in areas contacting the body and aesthetically to promote a sense of speed. The dual-purpose sideguards provide protection to the user while acting as a structural member for support.

Tensegrity

Tensegrity sensor for disaster sites, which could be dropped from the sky (drone) to collect data for emergency response crews to examine crucial data such as gas leakage, images, and audios from survivors. Due to the risk, this deployable sensor is especially beneficial when it comes to unapproachable sites by humans. Multiple tensegrity modules stored in a basket under the drone with an automated deployment system are deployed on multiple sites nearby to the region of interest once the drone arrives at the location.

Sim One

Tens of thousands of people may perish as a result of tsunamis. Because of the way that tsunamis work, humans lack the tools necessary to detect them directly. The current tsunami warning is based on erroneous and delayed modelling results of seismic data. This system is intended to directly identify tsunamis with high warning accuracy while continuously monitoring the internal dynamics of the ocean. The offshore work vessel anchors the equipment in the open ocean and fastens it with special ropes.

Remigo One

RemigoOne is the first fully integrated outboard motor in the form of a rudder. Involving boaters, sailors, and enthusiasts throughout the development process gave the team strong insights needed to redesign boating into a simple, frustration-free experience for all, including those with no nautical know-how. It is the lightest in its class, with all vital parts sealed into an IP67 watertight housing, and requires near-zero maintenance. It is also truly versatile: the same unit can propel any type of vessel up to 8m/1500kg, fits seawater, and meets regulations for use on all inland waterways.
