Why the inventapod?

The inventapod was designed by Faisal Ghani, a mechanical engineer and maker who became a dad. With the new addition to the family creating a space and safety problem for making, Faisal designed the inventapod so he could keep making at home and keep everyone happy at home. Faisal used the inventapod to work on Raspberry Pi and Arduino maker projects. When finished for the day, it has been designed to be packed away quickly for storage in a bookshelf. Its perfect for homes with hands-on makers at home which want to be kept tidy, uncluttered, and safe.

Thanks to Inventapod, my PhD research test rig on Li-ion Thermal Management Optimisation is perfectly organised, professional and tidy. The Inventapod is capable to enclose the entire instrumentation (one NI Power Source Unit, DAQ systems, thermal chamber PID controller, AC and DC power supplies), maximising safety against hazards and permitting 24/7 unattended operation. Finally, the unit is customisable, leading to implementation of a cooling fan to better thermalize all electronics. Our research group is eager to purchase further units for all BEng/MSc/PhD projects.
