Bill Murphy – Vibratory Therapy Device
Patients suffering from chronic bronchial and pulmonary conditions are always in need of methods to clear airways. This vibratory therapy device is a simple way for those suffering from conditions such as cystic fibrosis to get relief. By breathing in and out through the device, pulmonary build ups can be broken up and expectorated more easily.

Samuel Bernier – Fanon Lampshade
Shipping and longevity are the two major problems with common lampshades. By creating a 3D-printed lampshade, Samuel has made and “on-demand” product that can be made at home.  This eliminates the cost of storing the lampshade in a factory and the chance that it will be destroyed in shipping.

Qiyue Song – Wind Turbine
Qiyue’s design for a wind turbine is a simple five piece construction consisting of a hub, a cap and three blades. With wind turbines becoming a more popular method for generating energy, designing simplicity into their construction is becoming more important.  Qiyue’s model does just that.
