For the new unit, Mr. Layman presented us with a very different challenge: Build a prototype of something that detects smell. We later analyzed a series a handheld products such as the temperature gun, a old phone etc… Some classes after that, we created a design sketch to start create a final model. My product is based on a phone and a game controller. My has a filter that takes in the smell and then a in-built smell catalog (in the phone) will scrutinize the smell and then will show results.

In design class, we are making a Lightbox since during COVID-19, we could not travel, so we made a location that we missed. I chose the Izmir clock tower in Turkey since this is where my Grandmother lives. During the process of making the Lightbox I learned how to use Adobe Illustrator and I was fascinated by the laser cutting machine. One change I would like to make is to make the box bigger. One thing I am looking forward to is lighting the box at night since there are LED’s in the box.
