The Humble Transitor LLC:

This habit forming tool was a product I worked on for the YouTuber Simone Giertz. I did the hardware design for the product from early prototyping to final versions. Additionally, this project had some major cost constraints due to its large size and low target price point and I worked with suppliers in China to reach this goal.

Stages of prototyping

The client originally wanted to design something with 365 physical switches but since the experience of using the product mattered, high quality switches were going to cost more than a dollar each. I came up with a design using four capacitive touch trackpad controllers to simulate touch buttons.

Using a stackup of two large PCBs, I was able to integrate the electronics needed for the touch interface with the artwork and design the client asked for.
