Designed For Additive Manufacturing

Treo.Ai aimed to provide local sports teams an opportunity to capture and analyse video footage of every game similar to elite level clubs. Their goal was to provide an affordable panoramic video recording product/system (commonly used in football) for young athletes. 

The aim of the project was to develop the casing/body of the camera to house the built-in AI that creates panoramic sports footage. The casing needed to deliver commercial appeal, durability and water resistance whilst being designed for a production process that compliments the low number of units required.

The concept aimed to be dynamic in silhouette by using tapered angles and a leaning body. The form was sculpted to signify motion and give the impression of movement whilst stationary. The use of textured surfaces added character and broke up large empty surfaces.

Parts were optimised to be SLA printed due to the low number of units required. The aim was to implement elegant styling to the casing whilst keeping the costs down using off-the-shelf components.
