Funketic selected for New Designers show

Funketic, a product designed to help people with learning disabilities, has been selected for this summer’s New Designers show at London’s Business Design Centre. Created by Sheffield Hallam University industrial design student Matt Marshall, the colourful ‘sensory development aid’ aims to improve motor skills and hand/eye co-ordination for people with learning difficulties. Funketic emits light if rotated in different ways and produces sounds according to the speed of movement. It features a textured rubber exterior. Marshall received a grant from the Audi Design Foundation to develop his prototype. New Designers runs from 3-6 July and 10-13 July.
