The purpose of this project is to study a brand language which then is applied to an infrared thermometer. An existing product is being dismantled and furthermore placed into a new designed shell. The design process focuses on sketching, working with foam material and using the CAD tool Solidworks. The final outcome of this project is a working prototype.

Redesigning an IR thermometer within 18 hours.
the starting point - designing from within
The current IR-thermometer consists of three different main components. In the center a PCB incl. display is situated. The power comes from a 9V battery. An Infrared sensor is placed in the front part of the device. These main parts are hold in place by two plastic molds, secured by rips.
