Fall 2014 was a pivotal time both in the development of the Illumiloon design and in our newly-formed connections with the incredible FIT team. An exciting new year lies ahead for the Illumiloon team!


  • Having dealt with some kinks in the gas release mechanism in the fall, we have updated our design to include a 3-D printed attachment device that we are currently working on. This device will ideally be leak-proof, secure, and easy for an elderly person or someone disabled to use.
  • FIT has invited us to display our design at the Robotics Petting Zoo on March 15-17, which is a part of South by Southwest Interactive. In preparation for this event, we will be finalizing our design over the next two months and cranking out prototypes. Additionally, we are brainstorming creative and interactive ways to display our product.
