Product
Bottle Wash/Fill Station
Daedalus was invited to help with the design of the station, which involved an impressive collaboration of many disciplines - mechanical, electrical and software engineering, combined with industrial design, user interaction and user interface design.
Interface
Prescription Filling Interface
We have designed a minimal footprint robot for the retail pharmacy market (CVS, Walgreens, etc.) The robot can automatically fill prescriptions from over 200 stocked medications at speeds of up to 100 fills per hour.
Research
Construction Glove Research
We interviewed over 40 workers and supervisors from many construction industries, identifying areas for improvement in the redesign of construction gloves.
Engineering
Oxygen Blender
Our work included mechanical and electrical engineering, and the blender's industrial design based on initial forms created by our client's industrial design team. Challenges included working within pre-defined enclosure envelopes and reducing motor and airspeed noise.
