ID Senior Featured in 'Yanko Design'

January 27, 2014
E-WAT, an electronic water bottle designed by student WenHua Zhang ’14 (Industrial Design), was featured in Yanko Design, the world’s most popular and influential online design magazine.
Developed in Zhang’s senior studio under the guidance of professors Anthony Guido and Jennifer Goettner, E-WAT uses sensor technology to monitor a person’s hydration and water consumption.
“If you’re like me and two-thirds of people who don’t drink enough water, then you’ll appreciate the E-WAT too,” notes Yanko. “A touch sensor built directly into the skin of the thermos detects the user’s hydration and alerts them when they need to drink. Similar to a fitness band, users can set and achieve goals and monitor their progress over time. Genius!"
