VIDEO | STOY 2010

Rodrigo Delso and Javi Argota were developing some toys for the first Sustainable Toy competition in ETSAM Architecture School. The brief was to create a toy for children in emergency situations. A real prototype of the toy and a short video had to be presented. I joined them to make the videos and we end up making three different proposals.

First proposal: Teclas y Letras (keys and letters)



Rodrigo made this board game made out of  old re-painted computer keyboards. The game consists in forming words with the letters you pick up from the sack. Letters get attached in the board so even if the earth shakes, the letters remain in their place.


Second proposal: Dodecahedron



Argota developed a puzzle that children could build, followings the chronology of their actions throughout the day with a rope. Sleeping, eating, playing etc. 


Third proposal: Con la comida no se juega (Food is not for playing)



The last idea was just to make an eatable toy.

LAB | Begigorri a.k.a MMOT in Actua UPM contest 2010




My brother Aaron started developing a device capable of making touch screens on the go. We called it BEGIGORRI. I joined him in the process of developing the outside case and generating more ideas around. Ricardo Santonja told us we should present it to this years UPM Program for the creation of technology-based companies. So we did, we called the project MMOT and we were awarded with a Diploma. Aaron was not in Madrid to receive the award so I edited a photo to include him.
