2018 / Personal project

Aura is a power bank with integrated induction charging that powers electronic devices at home and on the go.

Inductive charging makes life a little bit better by making wires redundant. Today many electronic devices support wireless charging but charging them from a power bank still requires a wire. But why should it? The goal of this project was to design a product that merges the induction charger with the power bank into an object that feels just as home on the bedside table as it does on the go.

Ideation sketches were used to determine the general direction of the design. Refined elevation sketches that formed the basis for the CAD model were then drawn in Illustrator. The CAD model was created in Solidworks, rendered in Keyshot and touched up in Photoshop.
