Walkway’s generators could produce 200 kWh/day under subway turnstiles, Prototyping Update

Walkway, an NYU startup led by Benjamin Zhu (CAS BA ’23) & Max Trop (Tandon BS ’23), share lessons learned through their participation in the  Prototyping Fund Phase 1 We had no idea what would happen when we received help from the Prototyping Fund, what milestones we would achieve, and what would we learn. Both of us had and still have a large learning curve considering that we are still undergraduate freshmen. From the start, we immediately…

Fall 2019 Prototyping fund

The Design lab at MakerSpace hosted the awardees of the Prototyping Fund to review various methods and tools for prototyping on October 4th. Participants were encouraged to use prototyping as a tool to answer a question at hand. Using this notion, over the span of the semester, participants will treat prototypes as “questions embodied” and translate their vision into something that can be used to collect feedback from users. The teams were advised by the…
