20th June 2016, Day 2 of Design Degree Show 2016
The fascinating topics covered by our Guest speakers are always a big draw at the design and degree show. This year it was Ajay Sharma (Assistant General Manager, Tata Motors ), Poornima Phaltankar (cofounder, popup technologies), Vijaybahu Joshi (Assistant Vice President, Jio Infocomm), Noopur Datye (Ek Type) and Deepa Balsaver (illustrator, story teller) who held us in thrall. Our own Proffessors Prof. Jayesh Pillai and Prof. B.K Chakravarthy were also among the speakers for the day.
But the most awaited event was the award ceremony. Charting new depths was Industrial design Winner Sanket Pai's Laproscopic Device Design - that eases surgeon's discomfort while conducting this lengthy procedure. Riding to victory from Mobility design, was Nikhil KS, with his Bamboo Bicycle Design for children. From Interaction Design, it was Prasad B who hit the right keys. His predictive text input method for Swarachakra, has eased marathi text input for the over 10 lakh users who have downloaded this popular application. Visual Communication student Nilmani Kumar made Reel impact. His Movie, ''Taleeem'', studied weaver communities and education in Jharkhand while insight-fully exploring education's real meaning. Animation design's Ronney Devassia hit gold with his Kaakkapponnu.The movie retells an old Jataka tale in the context of Kerala.

Steered by Prof. Lance Rake - The Bamboo Bike Workshop - allowed 10 students to create all new bamboo bicycles from old metal ones. Centred around our Bamboo Studio, the student's work systematically invaded all our other labs. The metal Studio had them dismantling and cutting  up their old frames. While the plastic and metal studios's long tables hosted the final assemblies. The frames were then coloured in our Paint Studio. All this would have been impossible without the help of Prof. Chakravarthy. The Workshop, apart from being a whole lot of fun, allowed the students to explore and manipulate Bamboo's versatility and strength, while getting familiar with the many tools and processes that could be used on it.

In a previous interaction with students at IDC, education emerged as one of the key areas that designers could engage with. Today's interaction would seek to understand approaches to education; it would explore how design may be understood not just as a problem-solving-activity but through an engagement with society and certain philosophical ideas, serve as a useful tool for framing relevant policies for our times.

'Zero Sum' - An educational game based on maths, designed by Industrial Design Center was launched by Gakken, Japan on 1st may in the presence of Indian Ambassador, Gakken officials and other dignitaries. Zero Sum was designed by students Priya Ganadas, Chandni Kabra and alumnus Ashish Ganu under the guidance of Prof Athavankar. The game was designed to playfully teach children (age group 6 and above) basic arithmetic operations and order of operations, focusing on achieving a high repeat play value even after the concept of the game is understood.

Game consists of number chips, power cards and zero badges and can be played in a group of 4 to 5. Zero Sum was conceived during Prof Athavankar's 'Game Design' module last year and was later redesigned to suit Japanese audience.

'Zero Sum' has pioneered first of its kind collaboration between Gakken Group, and IIT Bombay. We are thrilled to further shape this relationship with Gakken, an established leader in education.
