Sunder is a concept for a closed loop manufacturing unit that makes life easier for parents and ensures kids always have the stuff they need to grow up happy and healthy.
Typically parents buy baby stuff which their child outgrows in three to six months, only to end up in a big pile in the garage. Using new 3D printing technology, Sunder changes this by allowing parents to only own the baby stuff which their child truly benefits from.
The experience starts with the Sunder App which recommends different products to parents that are appropriate for their child's age. These can then get printed on demand by the Sunder Appliance at home. Then as the child outgrows these products, the plastic can be ground down using the built-in grinder and reprinted into new recommended products that are more suited to child's ever-changing needs.
The design concept was a finalist for the IDSA IDEA Awards in 2013.
