Doodle Battle is a board game for up to four players. The rules are simple; the game offers a clue, and the players then have to draw a doodle on a post-it and place it in the middle of the table. If the computer recognizes the doodle as being the correct answer, the player wins the round.
However, just as humans are not perfect, neither are computers. The machine learning algorithm sometimes doesn’t recognize the doodle, or even in rare cases recognize the wrong doodle for being the correct answer. This adds another dimension to the game as the players are not only battling each other, but also battling the computer. It also makes it interesting in terms of learning about the capabilities of interacting with machine learning.
The working prototype consist of a semi-transparent table, a web camera and a projector.
Luft - The friendly bicycle pump
2010, School of Industrial Design, Lund University
Luft is a public bicycle pump with an iconic and recognisable shape. The design aims to create a clear affordance for placement of the tube and to light up the ground for improved visibility.
From guerilla interviews with cyclists I learnt that many were unaware of the many public bicycle pumps available around town. Other problems included exploding tyres due to lack of feedback, poor lighting conditions and difficulties putting the handle back on the pump after use.
The structure of the prototype was made by bending wood sheets.

Bodum Bio is a dish-brush that makes washing up more efficient and minimize environmental impact.
The biodegradable cellulose sponges are slided onto the handle and kept in place by friction. Detergent is filled into the handle and is dispensed through a small hole, always keeping the sponge soapy during use. The angled shape of the sponge and the tip of the handle facilitates cleaning hard to reach areas, such as the bottom of cups or the corners of a baking dish. The abrasive surface bends upwards and gets supported by the body of the brush.
The biodegradable sponges are the only single-use component. Together with the possibility of using an eco-friendly detergent, the environmental impact is minimized.
