My name is Jan Leyssens. I'm a student Industrial Design at the university college of West-Flanders.

For my masters project I'm going to develop a new demonstrator for the expo at IMEC.
This demonstrator will contain a new product that shows the power of IMEC's solar technology and this blog (the making of the product).

Feel free to sent in ideas, remarks, comments,...

Jan Leyssens @ Dutch Design Week - Eindhoven

in this next post you'll find back my presentation at the High Tech camping during the Dutch Design week in Eindhoven (Netherlands).

I'll have to excuse me for the bad sound. For the presentation (because you can't really see it), you can check out: :http://prezi.com/4fp79cb1rptd/

After ths presentation we had a live brainstorm session. This video won't be posted, but I'm going to make a summary with the best ideas in it. The method we used during this session is called the morphological analysis and can be found on http://www.innowiz.be/

This week I'll finally start posting some first worked out concepts as well, so keep checking, because now the project's really started.

market analysis - solar powered products

Today I finished my market-analysis concerning solar powered products.

I ended up dividing the products in 5 different classes: solar gadgets, lights, garden, pannels and chargers.

I made moodboards so it is easier for you to check it out. Next week I'll probably put a new video online, In this video you'll be able to see me present the project on the High Tech Camping @ Eindhoven during the Dutch design Week. I'll also explain some idea's and show you the brainstorms so far.

idea sketch

In this second post I'll put some idea sketches, these are loose thoughts I've had about solar power and everyday products, friday the 23st I'll be presenting the project in Eindhoven during the High Tech Camping. I'll finish my benchmark study (check out all the existing products with solar cells) later that week and after that I'll start the idea-generation.

In the meanwhile, have fun with these:
