Last week, we spoke to Glen Liberman from Kinekt Design (http://www.kinektdesign.com). Glen launched his company with the patented Gear Ring, which features six micro-precision gears that turn in unison when the outer rims are spun. The Gear Ring currently has over 1 million views on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NI2N6fsPjjg).
Glen has been designing since his 3rd year in college where he became interested in making prototypes of objects and products. Please find three examples of his work below:
One of his most recent design objects, inspired by Toshio Iwai’s Electroplankton game, is a square object designed to convey a sound wave. For fabrication, Glen intends to make each limited edition object out of glass and create a “new kind of snow globe” by filling the object with water and tiny plastic “square wave” fish.
Glen describes another design, Bauhouse Blocks, as a play on the German art movement, Bauhaus. To help convey the concept, Glen added in doors and chimneys to the circle, square, and triangle shapes.
A third design is called Vector Weapons. He designed pop-out/punch parts from which the weapons could be made. Using a laser cutter, the Weapons were fabricated.
