After showing us some of his work and tell us a bit about the process behind them, he gave us a few tips; "Make sure you work still looks good if it failed" and "Think about the space, the lighting, amount of people, the visibility". Basically suggesting that you should think about more than just the design of the product and more about its environment. 

To finish off he gave us a mini-workshop on Void draw using the Arduino. Where we learnt how to use them dimmer dial to control a flashing led and use it to adapt basic graphics on screen.
