Windoo

Design Team: n. David Teixeira, Dan Beauduin, Ally McMaster, Julie Gahwiler

The aim of the Future Technologies project was to create a new and innovative product based upon an emerging technology, which would appear on the market within the span of a few years.

The technology chosen was the "Artificial Setae" dry adhesive, based on a gecko's foot structure. The machine developed was an automated window washer which would rappel down the building whilst cleaning windows, before being hauled back up to the roof using the pre-existing guide-wires used by conventional window-washing settings.
