The Petit Preserver: Hand held laminator

I was part of a project to produce a device to encourage children to explore nature. The group settled on building hand held, battery powered laminator to preserve botanical samples: leaves, seeds, flowers etc. It allows children to preserve these samples into small laminated momentos that they can assemble into a scrap book, stick on the wall or place on the shelf.

I was assigned the role of the Chief Technical Officer, incharge of making the prototype work. And work it did. Below are the videos and portfolio produced for the project: The promotional video, the working prototype in action and an assembly video.

Oh the joy of making the petit preserver work!
