Oasis Washer & Dryer
This project was a part of one of my product design studio courses. I worked on a team of 3 people. The problem that we set out to tackle was with the laundry room on campus. When students washed their clothes, they would be taken out of the washer and left on top by other students. This made the laundry room a huge mess, and was a hassle.
To solve this, we created the Oasis washer dryer. Using existing technology, this machine would both wash and dry your clothes. We added the element of a basket which fits snug into the washer barrel, allowing clothes to be easily washed and removed together. If a student isn't present when his or her clothes are finished, the basket can be neatly placed to the side.
