My lack of project activity recently can probably be chalked up to the fact that I’ve been spending all of my free time working on an very worthwhile open source design project for oxfam. The project is to design a low cost water dispensing solution, which encourages use my children in a sanitary manner, you can read more about the project here : Oxfam Open Design Project. Here is how my design has progressed so far:
So far I’ve completed two full designs, along with product documentation and assembly instructions for each. All in all, its been a lot of work!
Oxfam are currently testing the submitted designs and will make design change recommendations to me soon.
This is a really exciting project to be part of and I hope I get the chance to make a real difference through design and engineering.
