The Wing Guard

About

A non-violent, non-toxic system for open-air food services to repel insects

The Wing Guard is a non-toxic insect repelling device that mimics the visual, movement, and sound of the dragonfly to improve the hygiene conditions and experience of temporary food services. The goal is to avoid the transmission of various serious infectious diseases in places that depend on temporary food service establishments where the presence of insects, especially flies, is both a nuance and a serious health concern for the seller and the consumer. It replicates the characteristic of the dragonfly, a natural predator, most feared by insects, in order to repel them.

As an aspiring industrial designer, I have been actively converting my imaginations into creative solutions to generate more happiness and convenience for the users. My interests and skills lie in several distinct fields, such as technology, service, toy, apparel, and illustration; they enrich my knowledge and experience, all the while granting me opportunities to combine and reflect. By interconnecting the different areas, I strive to bring to the world objects and ideas that are practical, beautiful, playful, and most importantly, helpful. more
