Volta – Energy Generating Rocking Chair

Volta is a rocking chair that generates electricity as you rock in it. I focused on the user research, product design, visual representation and graphic design, fabrication (milling and welding) and user experience. It was made as a group project in a class called Interactive Seating Design, a pilot Jacob's Institute for Design Innovation course at UC Berkeley. I worked along side two mechanical engineering students and a math major. It's been featured at the National Maker Faire in DC and in Popular Science, The White House Blog, Yahoo Tech, Jacobs Institute for Design Innovation, Trend Hunter, PSFK and Tech Times.
