Demonstration of the Prototype Sterilization Wall

Here is a quick peek a what the Sterilization wall will do with motion sensing. Great collaboration between Engineering and Architectural Science. Special thanks to Professor James Smith for helping out!

Continuing on the Sterilization Wall

With the components pretty much cut, the team continues to put them all together to make the project work.  The coordination with the biomedical engineering students ensured that the hardware worked with the fabricated components. From 3D printed components and the laser-cut acrylic armatures to the CNC-routed framework, the collaboration has proven to be quite an educational experience for all.

Sterilization Wall in Production

Here are some additional images of the team creating and preparing pieces for the Sterilization wall.  The Architectural Science students, Tiffany, Kenan, Nathaniel, and Stephanie all really stepped up the fabrication game to make some kinetic connections and hardware integration work out.

Surgical Wall

Following the [R]ed[U]x Lab's mantra of up cycling and developing some of the ideas put forth in other projects, a couple of team members collaborated with some of the Ryerson University biomedical engineering students in translating the framework from the Opticianado project into a prototype for a sterilization wall for a next-gen surgical theatre.  Here are some of the initial stages of sketching and prototyping:

Complete Opticianado Installation

This weekend was quite a busy time in the city of Toronto as it continued through its 2014 Toronto Design Offsite Festival which included the "Eyes on the Street" installation by the [R]ed[U]x Lab team out in the Junction at Opticianado.  The project was a great collaboration between not only the Architectural Science and Engineering students, but also between Ryerson University and the city as a whole.

Here are some great photos taken once again by Remi who has inadvertently become the unofficial photographer of the [R]ed[U]x Lab projects including the Night Market and Best Foot Forward.  He is a great talent and we are lucky to have his abilities and expertise available to us.

And as an aside, if any of you are open to do so, there is voting for the People's Choice Award this year... any votes would be greatly appreciated!
