Submitted on June 3, 2022 - 1:44pm

Two Industrial Design students have received recognition for projects over the last few months.

Jerred Mace

Mace is a junior and is part of an interdisciplinary team creating a product that "aspires to make live sports more accessible for people with visual impairments by translating real-time sports data into trackable vibrations" (quoted from Mace's portfolio).

Early in 2022, the team competed in the 16th annual Science and Technology Showcase, which was co-hosted by the UW Science and Engineering Business Association (SEBA) and the Foster School of Business Buerk Center for Entrepreneurship. OneCourt won the $2,000 Electronic Arts Grand Prize.

Mace and the team then went on to participate in the Dempsey Startup Competition, which is hosted by the Foster School's Buerk Center for Entrepreneurship. They won the $10,000 WRF Capital Third Place Prize.

Zerong Yang

Yang is a Master of Design student who is part of an interdisciplinary team creating Customouse — a custom-created computer mouse that solves ergonomic problems — which is also his thesis project. The team participated in the 2022 Hollomon Health Innovation Challenge, which is open to undergraduate and graduate students from Washington, Oregon, Idaho, British Columbia, and Alaska. It is also hosted by the Foster School's Buerk Center for Entrepreneurship. Customouse was chosen as a finalist in the competition.
