          We’re always talking about the future of design, the future of technology, the future of MAKING. In a world where batteries that dissolve in the human body could power embedded health sensors, a world where music listeners can control and direct their own immersive music video experience, how do we find the next big thing? MakerGalaxy is a show that explores the crossroads of Design, Technology, and the Future of Making. This week we talked with the president and CEO of a new initiative from Autodesk, Ms. Lynelle Cameron of the Autodesk Foundation. This new program from the leading software manufacturer aims to change how we think about Impact Design by taking great ideas and bringing them to reality faster than ever before. We’ll talk with Lynelle about everything from how she got involved with Autodesk after living in the Himalayas, how Autodesk is matching up with nonprofit product design firms, as well as what you can do to bring that great idea to life. We'll be discussing: Where can we find the best brunch on earth? What is 'Impact Design' and who are 'Impact Designers'? How has additive manufacturing changed the landscape of Impact Design? How can somebody with a great idea get involved with the Autodesk Foundation? What will Impact Design look like in the next ten years? ...and more!

            Talk: ‘User informed objects’ introduces a shift in the order of use - Using 3d algorithms and sensor personal data streams, we can now capture user behaviour patterns and ergonomic characteristics. Over time we can study our user communities and propose better products and services with enhanced performance and better fit. The user can be fully visualised and is in the centre of what we do. It is about the notion of ‘in touch’ and how can we stay ‘in touch’ with our user communities. It is a shift from ‘Consumer’ to ‘user’ into a ‘partner’ 'Open within boundaries' the Digital Forming technology. Introducing the notion of 'Open within boundaries' and the Digital Forming technology file formats ODO - Original Designed Object and CODO - CO Designed Object, a novel two sided 3D communication platform whereby the designer (the creator of the ODO) designs both the product and the product user experience as an integral and essential part of the product design process. An ODO embeddable file is presented to a user with its own product GUI and within a set of built-in rules and behaviours Biography: Assa Ashuach (www.assaashuach.com) was born in Israel in 1969, completed his BA at the Bezalel Academy of Art & Design in Jerusalem and his MA at the Royal College of Art at Ron Arad’s Design Products department in London 2003. Assa Ashuach studio was established in London, focusing on Research and Consultancy within the progressive design and manufacturing. Assa has exhibited in different galleries and museums around the world; his work is included in permanent exhibitions and public collections. Some of his early work was bought by The Contemporary Art Society for the ‘Special Collection Scheme’ in London 2003. Assa’s OMI light for Materialse mgx is one of the first 3D printed products to be distributed to a mass market in 2004. Assa was invited to show at London’s Design Museum Tank and Atrium over the London design festival and Frieze art fair in 2005, he received the Design Museum and Esmee Fairbairn Foundation Award. Assa introduced the Osteon chair, the first chair to be designed using a combination of 3D tools and artificial intelligence, produced by EOS SLS the chair met all of the mechanical requirements while only using 1/3 of the anticipated material. Assa received the ‘red dot’ award for product design 2006. In his show at Rabih Hage gallery in London Assa exhibited the AI light, a biologically inspired mechanism with a built-in ‘digital brain’ and sensors, introducing the notion of ‘training’ over controlling products in 2007. Assa was invited to lead and take part in writing and establishing the new cross-disciplinary ‘MA Design Suite’ of London Metropolitan University, Sir John Cass Art Media & Design in 2008. Assa has patented, trademarked and later co-founded Digital Forming ltd and UCODO ltd (User Co Design Objects), awarded TSB government funding to develop his vision of embedded ‘open 3D products’ featuring the technology with a collection of 3D shape modifiable products at London’s Science Museum’s 100 years anniversary in 2009. Following his RSA 21st century manufacture keynote, Assa was invited to install a 3D interactive product show of ‘co-generated’ products with users at the Victoria & Albert Museum over London’s design week 2011. Assa’s limited edition objects and a selection of co-designed digitally produced objects where bought by the Plasticarium museum, one of the world’s most comprehensive plastic pop design permanent collections as a glimpse into the future of product design in 2012.

            • Innovative Pediatric Manufacturing: Strategies & Solutions – A Guide To Bringing Your Device To Market

              New Michigan-Based Medical Product Manufacturing Effort Provides Solutions for Innovators ANN ARBOR, MI--(May 22, 2013) - The University of Michigan Pediatric Medical Device Consortium (M-PED) is launching a new medical product manufacturing video on Vimeo. This 28-minute video: "Innovative Pediatric Manufacturing: Strategies & Solutions - A Guide To Bringing Your Device To Market" features critical content on FDA manufacturing requirements for both pediatric and adult products. Two products being manufactured in the State of Michigan are featured. Since late 2009, M-PED has been focused on increasing and accelerating the process of pediatric device innovation specifically targeting the needs of children. While the U.S. market for medical devices is estimated at more than $90 billion, the demand for pediatric devices is relatively small, creating little financial incentive for companies to invest in the space. Historically, many corporate marketing and manufacturing partners have hesitated to become involved in producing medical products targeting small or niche markets. "We launched this video effort for several reasons," says Lindsay E. Klee, Commercialization Director, M-PED and the U-M Medical Innovation Center. "First, we're frequently approached by medical inventors who need and/or want guidance on prototyping or manufacturing their product. We wanted to have a baseline of product development guidance to offer to a wide, geographically-diverse audience." Second, "we frequently collaborate with industry partners who value knowing a product has been adequately tested and developed in accordance with FDA regulations." The video highlights a variety of large and small Michigan-based manufacturers and industry partners who have united with M-PED to focus on advancement of pediatric medical devices. One manufacturing partner featured in the video is CEO, Nader Najafi from Ypsilanti, Michigan-based ISSYS. Nader rationalized his participation in pediatric medical device manufacturing stating, "My team is very passionate about doing something that makes a major impact on people's lives. Having the opportunity to help is very exciting. The impact [on a child] may last for fifty or sixty years." "Manufacturing in Michigan is alive and adaptive. Showcasing local passion and knowledge was important," added Klee. James Geiger, MD, Executive Director of the M-PED Consortium explained his hopes for the future of the Consortium: "We want to be able to advise pediatric device innovators about the potential manufacturing options for their innovation so they can choose the optimal design to meet both the needs of the child and the manufacturing process. As their product develops, we will help them continually assess the best manufacturing process for their stage of development." "Innovative Pediatric Manufacturing: Strategies & Solutions - A Guide To Bringing Your Device To Market" is now available for viewing. Intended use: product development guidance & strategy. Intended audience: industry, academia, FDA, government, non-profits, independent inventors, pediatric healthcare advocates, and manufacturers. Special thanks to FDA for the sponsorship, Underhouse Studio for their film production efforts, participants/industry/inventors (including U-M faculty, UMHS PR, staff, in2being, LLC, Terumo, and ISSYS) for their participation and filming review, a wide-range of University of Michigan supporters, and the Pediatric Medical Device Institute in Roanoke, VA for their partnership.
