Flowdometer, The Intelligent Showerhead

Product concept developed while an undergraduate student at BYU.

Developed in an intensive 3-week product design course at the National University of Singapore (Summer 2011), the Flowdometer is a showerhead that alerts you of your water use as you shower.

I like to think that this project was the inspiration for subsequent work by the National University of Singapore and a later call from the Singaporean public works for proposals to develop smart shower-heads to provide real-time feedback of water use.

PosterBot

Posterbot is a robot I built in the right after I graduated from high school (Summer 2007). It draws simple B&W bitmaps onto poster paper using a marker.
