MDes / BA (Hons) Product Design
Introducing Orbis by Jacob Cave. A recent graduate of Coventry University BA Product Design, currently in search of industrial design opportunities. Passionate about all aspects of design and always eager to apply design thinking to real-world problems. Experienced in multidisciplinary design from graphics through to mass production.
This final major project was driven by a desire to reintroduce control and tactility to those who desire functionality and real interaction in order to aid escapism using home audio devices. The manifesto of real interaction determined the rights a user has in relation to a product and ensured that the developed outcome allowed for these rights to be exercised.
Orbis is a smart record player, encouraging intentional real interaction whilst still allowing for current day modernity and ease. Smart records allow personal playlists to be created and updated, smart record activating the Google smart assistant, whilst also functioning as a typical record player.
Orbis - Not your typical record player.
