Capstone Design Studio Ben Politte

I challenge myself to create products whose form appears understandable, or even simple, but whose function surprises.

DashBoard

DashBoard is an electric car platform for kids that focuses on modularity and creative freedom. Using a simple electronic system and unified hardware, DashBoard is as easy to change pieces of as any building tool, except you can drive this one!

Whether you want a red and yellow combination, all black, maybe one without a rear, you can configure DashBoard in any way you want. All it needs to function are the base, wheels, a way or steering, and a way of stopping. The rest is entirely up to you.

About Me

Ben Politte

Hi, I’m Ben and I’m a 4th year industrial design student at Georgia Tech. I challenge myself to design products whose form appears understandable, or even simple, but whose function surprises. I have an interest in tech and electric vehicles that all started with RC cars. As a kid, I was first exposed to making by creating simple boats that I raced with my grandfather down a stream. Over years that developed into an interest in digital fabrication, which then lead to wanting to be a designer.
