INNOVATIVE PROJECTS FROM IZMIR UNIVERSITY OF ECONOMICS
Izmir University of Economics (IUE), with 14 innovative projects, award-winning designs, and achievements of its graduates, took part in Turkey Innovation Week that was organized by Turkish Exporters Assembly. Ekrem Demirtaş, President of IUE Board of Trustees and Prof. Dr. Oğuz Esen, IUE Rector visited the students who became the centre of attraction with their projects that were based on practical solutions to various daily problems, and got briefed about their projects.
Deniz Karaşahin, Graduate of IUE Department of Industrial Design, delivered a presentation about his internationally recognized study on his custom design arm cast thru 3 D printer technology. Designs of Övünç Baydemir, IUE graduate who came in first place in the contest organized by Aegean Exporters Association, Şeyma Aslın, Cotton Design Pamuk Special Award recipient, and İpek Özyoldaş, who came in first place in the contest organized by Denizli Exporters’ Association, were exhibited by Turkish Exporters Assembly.
President Ekrem Demirtaş pointed out that the students were trained in an entrepreneurship culture at Izmir University of Economics, and he said, “Entrepreneurship is not possible through courage only. Our students need to have a strong background as well as having an innovative vision. Today I am convinced that the achievements of our graduates and the awards they receive proves that we are on the right path. Now, they are able to tell the new generations what an innovative idea means.”
The students had a chance to display their innovative ideas through designs such as heater for breast milk, electrical water dispenser, bathtub for elderly, etc. Utku Namlıses, student of IUE Department of Industrial Design, offers a chance to play digital lottery with his Lotto RGB named project. He said that the technology offered access to everything for mobile users. "Virtual interfaces replace the physical shops, papers, and cashiers. I thought that there is a young population who learns about lottery games quickly but these are not easily accessible by them. Lottery games have been around for a long time with the same principality. Even though filling in the columns with lucky numbers is still popular, in the digital world we live in, I wanted people to try this out by using colours and shapes with my project “stated Namlıses.
Namlıses said that each of the digital colours is identified as a combination of red, green, and blue between 0 and 255. He stated the following about the game:
"Three colours combined together represents one colour and is reflected upon the screen we are in interaction with. The game is basically for a player to choose a colour based on these trio colour code, and try to match it with the colour that comes out as a drawing held periodically."
