Q1: What is TechShop to you?

A: It’s a laboratory where I can bring my dreams into reality.

 

Q2: Up to this point, what have you been making?

A:  I’m developing devices to assist with nursing care, so I’ve made parts for those, as well as wooden shelves, various little knick-knacks.

 

Q3: Would you tell us about what you’ve made this time?

A: It’s an ornament shelf made from acrylic plastic.  I made this whilst thinking about how maybe we could make care facilities a little more vibrant and pleasant. It’d be good if we could support people a bit by also caring for their emotional well-being.
