Dandy is part of Karim Master Degree Thesis in Design&Engineering. The project director (or Co-Designer) was Giulia, that worked with Karim, Stefano and Alessio in order to develop a custom Robotic Arm that allows to eat independently.
Cost reduction, economic scaling up and modularity were the main points considered through the whole design process. Now, Dandy has been developed in its beta version and it could be used and tested from Giulia during her daily routine.
