The Hart Framing Hammer incorporates multiple features, such as a side strike, magnetic nail set, side nail puller and rebar bender while maximizing weight and balance for optimal user comfort and usability. It also retains the traditional qualities of polished steel as well as strong handle materials, such as hickory, steel and fiberglass, all of which are recyclable.
This fire truck is a powerful tool for firefighters around the world who battle large wildfires. The unique space in the vehicle’s center functions as an information base when no communication infrastructure is available. The operator can communicate with headquarters and aerial units to coordinate firefighting strategies. It has a system that changes water to foam, and it can fight fires while moving.
“Climb into it, drive it, use it, analyze relevant data in it or enjoy looking at it. The Wildfire truck illustrates the power of a bold, refined prototype to test innovative thinking by richly probing a market space with a visceral, hands-on experience of the features and brand.” – Philip Swift, IDSA, Director of Industrial Design - North America, Crown Equipment
The Blink family of electric vehicle charging stations consists of three products: a wall-mounted unit for overnight charging in private garages or carports, a pedestal unit for retail locations and a DC Fast Charging unit for gas stations and in between major commute corridors throughout the country.
The Versaflo respiratory system gives users flexibility as they move from one environment to another or from one application to the next. Each system consists of three easy-to-select modules—headgear, breathing tubes and air sources—that can be combined into dozens of system configurations for protection from a range of respiratory, head, eye and hearing hazards.
The Circulating Water Bath is a refrigerating and heating temperature control unit used for laboratory applications. The LCD touchscreen technology guides the operator through setup and operation, and a powerful pump circulates heated water throughout the reservoir to deliver consistent temperature control. Temperatures can be monitored from anywhere in the laboratory with the pivoting control head.
The Welcoming Vehicle Control System controls access to buildings and residential areas. An RF reader identifies residents as they pass by the controller, automatically authorizing their entrance and exit. Visitors use the interphone to call the person they are visiting, who authorizes their access to the site. The vehicle controller plate sensor number monitors and records the vehicles that pass in case of accidents or a disaster.
The Hyper Variaxis can completely machine a work piece, including multiple surface machining, from raw material to completion in a single work-piece setup to provide improved productivity in the production of complex components, such as those found in the aerospace and automotive industries.

The Articulating Scaffold has the ability to walk with the motion of the user, eliminating the need to constantly climb up and down and reposition the equipment. The work table provides a space to store tools, keeping them safe and organized while repositioning. A few simple, intuitive motions collapses the unit, making it easy to transport to the truck or job site.
DaVinci Resolve is a precision hardware control surface and integrated software solution for color grading motion pictures. Color correction is like holding the images in your hands and molding them into absolute perfection. Color artists work endless hours, so the team engineered the design and placement of the controls to increase capabilities while reducing complexity.

This custom-designed ATM for the Spanish bank BBVA was designed from the user experience up, rather than from the components down. The design team listened to people’s banking experiences and observed people’s behavior at ATMs. The team also examined analogous self-service experiences, such as those at gas pumps and train-ticket kiosks, leading to a design that doesn’t further automate the teller, but that humanizes the transaction experience.
