The semester project of the winter semester 2022/23 was a cooperation with the Start-Up Dinnity Robotic Kitchen. The objective was to design a machine making scrambled eggs for restaurants or hotels.

The result of our team, consisting of Matthias Stütz, Felix Grabmaier and Florian Huber, was a fully automated machine, which is not only fast and efficient to produce but also scores aesthetically. An emphasis was also put in making the cooking preparation visible and comprehensible for the users.
The concept was based on three pillars that characterize the machine. The first one concerned the interaction of the user with the machine. We deemed this as very important and therefore put much effort and time in designing an intuitive User-Interface. It consists of icons which describe the process, a dial for selecting the portion size and an illuminated start button. Another important point concerned the realization of the project, as the possible manufacturing processes and the budget of this Start-Up was rather limited. The last pillar regarded the maintenance. It was therefore designed in a way to make every part easily accessible and, because of the machine consisting of mostly plain surfaces, very easy to clean. The rather neutral and compact design of this scrambled eggs machine enables it to blend in well with most styles of buffets and signifies the next step towards future gastronomy.
AI Design Generations

We tried to use Stable Diffusion AI for creating ideation renders out of a package blender image. It worked out quite well, we could generate around 300 designs from classic to modern. 

VR Usability Tests

These tests allow us to assess the ease of use and effectiveness of our designs in a simulated environment, which can ultimately lead to better product design and usability.
