a lunch spinner
In response to a need for a better way to decide where to go eat lunch every day, I designed and created a rewriteable rotating wheel for my internship advisor at Function Engineering. I submitted design proposals, we conducted design reviews, and I worked with her to accommodate her preferences, budget, and time constraints. My lunch spinner is adaptable, easy to use, and comfortably fits in my advisor’s cubicle. Lunch disputes are certainly less frequent now.
