What does the future look like and what products will help make us perform better? It’s Samy’s purpose, as an industrial designer to create products that inspire. Let’s join in on the steps he’s taking…
I’m actually working on several projects at the moment, such as #isthisart, which are biodegradable stickers pointing to random pieces in the city. But as an industrial designer I have been working full-time on Crescent vision.
A wearable camera developed for surgeons that can capture their entire field of view whilst operating. Both in VR and 3D, with the objective to help medical students and surgeons perform at their best.
It’s the start-up scene that brought me here, but what attracted me the most were the people. People and their mentality to come up with an idea and actually create it, “the maker scene”.
Amsterdam has a huge and thriving maker community, such as here at Makerversity, a place with all the needs to build prototypes.
The infrastructure here in Amsterdam is what inspires me: bikes, trams, cars, skateboards. Everything’s working harmoniously.
The main purpose inside my products is to inspire and as a maker and an industrial designer, my dream would be to spend some time in Shenzen/ China, which is a Mecca to industrial designers.
