This semester, a team of industrial design students at Auburn is exploring new entrepreneurial opportunities that create a closer relationship between the designer and the customer. Our intent is to design a product, get feedback during the design process, and work towards crowdfunding the project through a crowdfunding site such as Kickstarter.com.
Some background on the idea: Televisions are evolving. They are smaller, lighter and smarter. Internet enabled televisions and small accessories, such as Apple TV, Boxee and Roku are un-tethering the television from cable boxes and a mess of wires. These designs begin to address this evolution. No longer will the television need to be confined to the corner of your living room. Imagine a TV and mount that is light and portable enough to move from room to room, or even outside - with a single power cable to manage.
