THE SOUND & THE FABRICATION

A portable speaker and subwoofer system, The Oculus is a design study into the nature of usability and niche market research. The Oculus is the home entertainment answer to the laptop- a portable, cool speaker system designed with quality in mind. Containing two periphery speakers that attach to a central subwoofer hub for transport, the Oculus system can move with you, from home or apartment to office or studio and give you rich, immersive sound anywhere you please. For this project, I was awarded the Stephen H. Robertson Scholarship in Industrial Design in 2010.
