PLAYLIENSIn a galaxy far away, on the planet Playton, the Playliens live. The Playliens survive by playing In recent times a group of Playliens decided to leave their planet in search for other creatureswith the small creatures called the Funnibles that live in caves under the ground. Playton has to play with. Luckily, after a long journey, they found Planet Earth where children were playingalways been a happy place but recently the Funnibles have been very lazy and only wanted all the time, and the Playliens could finally play again! They have contacted their home planetto stay in their caves, so surviving have been difficult for the Playliens. and hopefully more Playliens will come along, but only if children play with them enough. Christian von Hanno 2009

DIO PUMP - TECHNOLOGY Insulin administrator Connection point 1: Connection point 3: Connects to the insulin tank Charger port. to pump insulin through the microneedles Connects to the pump Computer controller Connection point 2: Collects data from the circuit board and sends it to the main circuit board. Two set of microneedles. Pancreas One for monitoring blood Connects to the circuit sugar levels and one to board Glucose monitor deliver insulin.An artificial pancreas will enable people living with type 1 diabetes to better maintain bloodsugar levels within a target range with minimal effort, essentially acting as an artificialpancreas. The results for millions will be better quality of life over an entire lifetime, andlower risks of complications.The most common types of diabetes are type 1 and type 2. In type 1 diabetes the dioPump uses the Artificial pancreas system which has two currently available technologiespancreas stops making insulin. Without insulin, the body’s cells cannot turn glucose integrated: A continuous glucose monitor and an insulin pump with an algorithm that(sugar), into energy. Insulin therefore needs to be injected or pumped in using an insulin provides the right amount of insulin at the right time. The dioPump are equipped withpump, to control the blood sugar.

THE MEDEMA EXPERIENCE - SKETCHING PROCESSThe product concepts are based directly on the earlier mapping we have done which initiated All this were worked on simultaneously and we made what we called a sketching map infour design issues. The first was a scooter configuration for use outside the aid market, addition to the system map that organized our work but also as an experiment for testingthe second a concept scooter reflecting our proposed brand DNA, the third the scooters out a way to combine a sketching with complexity-thinking. It was beneficial to have both thecontroller and interaction with its display and fourth the seat which needed a major overhaul, sketching map and the system map hanging on the wall together so that we had the abilitybased partly on our finding on importance of posture and talk with the technicians in Denmark. to continuously check that our sketched concepts were in accordance with the system.

SALTO DC QUICK CHARGER www.salto.noAn electric vehicle normally takes 6-8 hours to charge. With DC quick charging technology This project investigates and maps out the challenges and needs of quick charging. As athe charging time is reduced to 20-30 minutes. By installing quick chargers in urban and result of my findings I have designed a quick charger concept for Salto. The new DC quickrural areas it will reduce range anxiety amongst EV drivers and make electrical vehicles a charger provides an intuitive, inclusive and user-friendly charging experience and can easilymore attractive choice. adapt to different environments and locations with its module based system.Salto is a company based in Oslo that develops and design new products and infrastructuresolutions for charging of electric vehicles.
