    The resulting device is not cost-efficient for mass production. Sketching on.

    smartlabs process 08

    Drafting several new ideas.

    smartlabs process 09

    Making models of the new designs and comparing them with the current version.

    smartlabs process 10

    We decided to preserve the internal layout as much as possible, thus the case has to be similar to the existing model. The search continues.
