A do-it-yourself laptop stand, whose waste material can be used to create various of functional objects. Inspired by left–over laser cut sheets.

A system that helps cohabitating couples become more synchronized in their sleep routines. It includes a set of holographic candles and an app that connect to the home’s lighting system.

YAPP! is nevertheless a system proposal for laser–cutter users in order to get their attention to material usage by illustrating a wasteless laptop stand and its reuse system of left–overs.

The components of Corus are the main candle in the bedroom and other “satellite” candles around the home. The app connects to the main candle through the cloud. The satellite candles are connected to the main candle through Bluetooth and can also control the smart lights such as Philips Hue.  Users can control the lights two ways: through the app and by using gestural inputs on the candles themselves.

Since Yapp! is made from plywood, it is ecologically sustainable.

In order to check the current time, the user has to pick the display up since the display is no longer facing towards the user.

With the help of the two angle slots, a laptop can be used in either 15°or 22,5° angles.

After looking at the time, the user has to put the display back to its base to silence the speaker completely and turn off the light.

With the help of the flexible joint, many different structures can be built and transform into others like playing jigsaw.

To add more stabilization to built structures, common rubber pencil grips can be attached to work as stoppers.

Design Process

Our project brief was "to imply the remix/sampling/mash–up techniques of music artists to product design profession."

To research copy/transform/combine, I have presented open design concepts such as ready–made, hacking.

Using laser–cutters in workshops create many left–over sheets with many unused spaces.

Upcycling laser–cut leftovers to an another product was the first idea, but turned on impractical but inspiring.

Getting inspired by left–overs, an idea was a laptop–stand without any waste of material.

Left–over parts can be used to create structures for different purposes.

Parts can be cut from different materials such as metal, plexiglass but using plywood is eco–friendly.

Combining 44 “left-over” parts with common pencils, limitless forms can be created for various functions.
