Back at uni after a good three weeks and over those last few weeks I have been working on my drill project. So far, i have been able to come up with a design concept that i believe will work for a modern day design student.
The design I have in mind will incorporate all of the basic features that a drill would need, including an LED, gear changer, spin control and I aim to improve the ergonomics of the drill. Below you can see a collage of drill in industry at the moment.
From this i can see that there is a pretty standard style for a drill, just a difference in colour, batteries and handling. So i believe that i can move away from this and create a new minimalist design that would be more appreciated by design students of today. Now to see what will happen next week.
