Smallfry have a strong background in wearable devices and as a result were commissioned by Imperial College London to investigate the possibilities of wearable technology.
Smallfry’s design team use high quality sketching and marker rendering to demonstrate ideas internally as part of our iterative design process. Our wearable device concepts provide a glimpse of what we can do.
Visualising the Future
The neckwear concept was brought to life in CAD as a surface model to produce a 3D visualisation of each concept. Our team find surface models to be a fast and accurate way of communicating design intent.
As part of an iterative process, further work was carried out enhance the initial concept. The resulting model enabled fast, highly detailed 3D renderings of the design to be generated.
Physical and Virtual Prototyping
The Smallfry team virtually tested the neckwear using data from a 3D scanning of an anthropometric mannequin. This provided a reference for the device’s form and size, enabling an accurate 3D model to be printed.
