New product launch, designed by Dinamo

Our last project, HeadActive® by Onlywise®, was recently launched and shown at the Rehacare´2013 fair in Düsseldorf. HeadActive® is a new holding system for children and adults with neck hypotonia. Easy to place and adjust, HeadActive® will safely and reliably allow these patients to keep their heads up and look straight at the world around them. A whole new and rewarding experience for them and their love ones. See how here.

Dinamo has embraced the challenge to accomplish this project in a record term in order to show the product in this fair.

Dinamo cautiva a los niños en Eureka

KTbot es el nombre del nuevo guía del museo Eureka de la Ciencia de San Sebastián. Durante su presentación el pasado miércoles 24 de julio hizo las delicias de los principales usuarios de los servicios que ofrece el museo, los niños. De un modo ameno y divertido KTbot les guió e ilustró sobre la oferta cultural y las posibilidades de aprendizaje. Durante su estreno KTbot demostró que es capaz de navegar autónomamente sorteando todo tipo de obstáculos, garantizando así la seguridad de los niños a su alrededor, y de realizar tareas varias como guiar a las visitas, hacer presentaciones de los contenidos del museo en diferentes salas y ejercer de asistente de actividades en los eventos organizados por el museo.

Los equipos de Tekniker y Dinamo han trabajado conjuntamente en el diseño, desarrollo y fabricación del robot en este proyecto durante 11 meses. Desde el comienzo, el objetivo principal consistió en hacer compatibles las restricciones y exigencias de las tecnologías empleadas con los requisitos y demandas propios de un aparato para tratar con personas, especialmente con las de talla pequeña.

El principal reto ha residido en conseguir un robot capaz de integrarse y operar de manera segura y fiable en entornos humanos y con comportamientos infantiles, en oposición a los robots tradicionales, diseñados para operar en ámbitos específicos y controlables como los industriales, científicos, etc. Además, KTbot debía poder interactuar con las personas para realizar su función.

Todo ello se ha logrado mediante la integración de hasta 14 sensores diferentes (de tipo láser, térmicos, ultrasonidos, ópticos, etc.) y varios actuadores en un cuerpo a la vez operativo, amable, atractivo y reconocible para los más pequeños.

Con este proyecto Dinamo consigue un nuevo éxito en la aplicación de sus principios de diseño centrado en los usuarios. La prueba de ello se puede ver en este video:

Dinamo visits MaterialConneXion-Cologne

Convinced that their slogan – Every idea has a material solution – makes sense, we visited the german branch office of Material ConneXion, the leading global platform for material solutions and innovations. There we could see the largest library of innovative materials in the world and the smart tools to profit from their materials knowledge. This will help us finding and choosing the right material for every challenge and, doing so, contribute to add value and competitive edge to our customers´ products.

With offices in New York, Bangkok, Beijing, Cologne, Daegu, Istanbul, Milan, Seoul, and Shanghai, Material ConneXion is a international network of material specialists providing a global, cross-industry perspective on materials, sustainable alternatives, and their potential uses.

Dinamo at Innomateria’2013

Last may 15th, we were at Innomateria and Interzum in Cologne (Germany), the leading trade fairs for innovative materials, where stakeholders from around the world come together to engage in a multidisciplinary exchange of ideas in the fields of materials research, materials engineering and applications. There we had the chance to see the last trends in the field and keep pace with the cutting edge in the subject. Our customers benefit from this knowledge when we propose the use of new materials or components to tackle their challenges during a product development project.

Watch for more news after this visit coming soon.

Dinamo is an iF winner

With this achievement Dinamo continues a story of awarded works along its business trajectory, always helping our customers to develop high quality designed and innovative products.

The outcome has been valued by a jury which considered criteria such as design quality, finish, choice of materials, degree of innovation, environmental impact, and aspects of universal design.

The product will be shown in the iF design exhibition Hannover, running from 5 to 9 March 2013, alongside the world-famous CeBIT show at the Hannover exhibition center. From May 2013, it will be displayed in the interactive exhibition at the new HarborCity in Hamburg.
