Nest Mobile

Category:  Industrial Design, DFM

Time:  2022 Summer, 14 weeks

Role: Industrial designer 



This is my capstone project. I am interested in the tech of Google ATAP & Google X. Also, I firmly believe that when level-5 autonomous driving becomes a new normal, it will fundamentally change the way we work and live. The result is a computer as a room on wheels. It can also be used as a product showcase room for Google Nest in 2030 (project has no affiliation with the brand)

Exterior Design

The focus of the exterior design is to design a self-driving van that blends the boundary of car and house, meanwhile encouraging interaction and feeling "Google" even in distance!

The interior design & layout of existing van designs force people to get used to living in a compact and DIY space. Most people have hard time transition from van life to normal life, or reverse sequence.

Interior Design

The focus of interior design is to design a versatile space that maximizes the interior space, feeling less crowded. At the same time, it is a computer as a room on wheels. So, it communicates and can be adjusted based on needs.

I took the challenge to finish both exterior, interior and experience design in 3 months. The versatile workspace of the Nest Mobile is a magical space with intelligent features & experience, and is in a separate PDF.
