Recently Studio diip started a project that will be, like many developments here, a combination of product development and computer vision. The goal of the project is to develop a new product that enables a more intuitive way to use laser cutting machines. This project is a joint effort where Leon van Noord will handle the technical aspects of the development and Sandra Sastre Pérez will work on the product design.
Leon is doing his internship as part of the Computer Science program for the Hogeschool Utrecht. Although he started doing his internship just recently, Leon is not new to the area of computer vision. Next to some courses in his education Leon has already been part of the Studio diip team for some months working on complex computer vision projects.
Sandra is working on this project as part of the Leonardo Da Vinci program from the Balearic Islands. Having finished an education as a product designer and with experience in graphic design she will be more than able to work on the product design part of the assignment.
We’ll have more news about the latest developments when the project is starting to show some physical results. Some results of the laser cutter have already found their way into a select number of (physical) mail boxes in the form of special christmas cards.
