These are Natacza and Mark. They are my Summer 2013 Design Team.

Natacza & Mark adventures

Natacza & Mark

Natacza and Mark are working on the ‘Mirror for waterbirths’ project, a collaboration among the Universities of Edinburgh, Heriot-Watt and Loughborough, along with the NHS Lothian, and sponsored by the Edinburgh and Lothians Health Foundation.

This is them doing some lego brainstorming for mechanisms and functional features.

Concept generation well underway. The most difficult bit was explaining the guy at the airport why we were carrying those mock-ups in our hand-luggage.
