Robot Ambulance Concept Drawing

I’m very honored that my concept, Robot Ambulance, has been accepted into Make: Ultimate Maker Vehicle Challenge.

The winners were announced in Apartment Therapy’s Design Showcase: the Prop won the judge’s award and Block Desk and Quartet Chair won the people’s vote. Two great designs.

One of the judges, Rob Forbes founder of PUBLIC Bikes, had some really nice things to say about the Secret Passageway Switch:

Thanks to all that voted for my entry, I really appreciate it. I couldn’t have made it this far without you. The switches should be going on sale shortly.
