I was hired to help a team of PCC Students competing in the 2019 InventOR competition bring their ideas to life. The invention was an off-grid vending machine for parks and recreational areas which rents sports equipment or relevant items that would normally have to be purchased or rented at a store. The "VendRenter" machine also has ports for charging phones and a wifi access point. The team came up with the concept from their own experience taking kids to parks and forgetting or losing important things, as well as a desire to create a device implementing sustainable technology which promotes community engagement and equitable access to shared resources.

I created 3D models of their designs using Fusion 360 (which contributing considerably to the design process as it unfolded), animated it in a 3D environment with Unity, made 3D modeled prototypes, and composited mock photos of the machine in different settings.
