Product
Customizable mobile phone case
Featured in USA Today shortly after launch, Casepops is a unique line of mobile phone cases with interchangeable charms called pops. The user can mix and match the myriad pops to give his or her phone a whole new look without even taking it out of the case. In addition to providing industrial design and mechanical engineering, Daedalus also built and tested a series of 3D printed prototypes, conducted first article inspection, and helped guide our client through manufacturing. Made in the US, the Casepops system is protected by design and utility patents. Visit Casepops to learn more, or watch this video from Casepops to see how the system works:


Interface
Bottle Wash/Fill App
We supplemented our industrial design and mechanical engineering services for our client's new bottle cleaning and refilling station with software design and engineering for a new mobile app.
Research
Firefighter SCBA Research
We visited six professional fire companies of varying sizes, observing and interviewing company members regarding the use, weight, and safety features desired of an ideal SCBA.
Engineering
Oxygen Blender
Our work included mechanical and electrical engineering, and the blender's industrial design based on initial forms created by our client's industrial design team. Challenges included working within pre-defined enclosure envelopes and reducing motor and airspeed noise.
