Tomorrow Lab’r Ted Ullrich has just wrapped-up teaching a 10-week product design studio at Drexel University in New York’s 6th borough: Philadelphia. The theme of the studio was to consider Rapid Fabrication and Open Source Hardware as means to address problems with Hearing Aid devices: their high costs, the difficulty in acquiring them, and their associated social stigmas.
The project was conducted as a collaboration between the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design (CIID) and Drexel University. At the end of June, Ted will visit CIID to report on the student’s work and Tomorrow Lab’s CoBuilt model, a vision for using rapid fabrication for sellable goods.
