Final Design Project Review

Ideas for my Final Design Project are still not certain. As I continue to learn more, experiment, and see more, moe possibilities, and impossibilities arise.

  1. I am still toying with what "Time in a Bottle" looks like to me. The design and the mechanism involved. I am no clock maker.
  2. I am also thinking about building my ideal 10' x 10' x 10' living pod. I am a traveller and small, mobile living fascinates me.
  3. Additionally, after having such fun engraving my sketches, the idea of a "Story House" came to mind. Where one goes inside a box of engraved stories that envelop you.

What is the goal?

What is the prior art?

What are the systems and components?

What questions will I need to answer?
