This is a “form prototype” for my 3rd year engineering design project at Waterloo (SYDE 361 - Introduction to Design). My group designed a device that warns people with sensory neuropathy of dangerously hot water. As part of the project, we had to build a functional prototype (which can look like anything but must work) and a form prototype to show what the final, polished product would look like. Normally students use SolidWorks or AutoCAD for the form prototype, but I felt that it would look better if I did it in LightWave since I would not have to learn SolidWorks from scratch. There was also a short animation that shows the device working, which turned out to be very entertaining due to the soundtrack I used. The name of the product was inspired by the Roman town of Aquae Sulis, which is famous for the Roman baths that were built there.
