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,...

Creating the circuit

Testing Solar cells

How to dismantle an Eee Pc

One of the first things we did during the tests was checking weather it was possible to remove the Eee Pc from it's original casing.
This could be really useful if we want to create a new casing for the laptops.

We also dismantled the laptops battery, so we could place it next to the solar module.

After a long silence


First of all I have to excuse me for the long silence on this blog.

Since February, the project was really fired up. The testing started mid March and is almost finished by now. In the next posts I'll explain everything we did so far, what's up at this moment and what will come the next week before it's the big finale (the project is due mid May).
