Five Indian industrial designers have come up with affordable tablet design without sacrificing its performance. Ergos concept tablet has been specially designed for sketching, giving designers budget platform where they can easily keep track their ideas and designs.
Sketching tablets are a boon to our Designer and Artist tribe. True tat! But for an average design graduate here in India, the Intuos and the Cintiq range tablets are way way beyond reach, at least during our grad school days. What we make do with is small bamboo or an inkling (fancy!!). However, these small little devils have their own set of problems which any experienced user will tell you.
ERGOS is new age entry level sketching tablet + accessory set, designed taking into considerations the best principles of Physical, Organizational and Cognitive ergonomics into the picture, all the while keeping the intent for need of sketching and rendering as a tool for ideation and representation at the forefront.
Triggered by the problems we personally faced while using the smallest versions of the sketching tablet along with a inputs from users from other professions (animations artists and transportation designers), ERGOS was a classroom projects taken up by 2nd year Industrial Design students Sumedh Vartak, Indrajeet Bakhale, Sagar Joshi, Hrushikesh Joshi, and Syed Hamzauddin at MIT Institute of Design, Pune, India.

Today, KOR Water and RKS Design has announced their latest sustainable hydration solution, Aura. It combines the design attributes that have been consumer’s favorite with the company’s most economical offering to date. KOR Aura Hydration Vessel design is sleek and simple, a striking reusable bottle that puts the spotlight on water. Aura features a tapered, “obelisk” profile and delivers incredible ergonomics with KOR’s patent-pending “Perfect Spout” and hallmark spoiler handle. Made from BPA-free Eastman Tritan, Aura marks the fourth salvo in KOR’s design-centric hydration line with the partnership of RKS.
The name Au∙ra [awr-uh] is a reference to water in classical mythology – the goddess that Zeus transformed into a spring. Today Au∙ra refers to ‘a distinctive and subtly pervasive quality or character seen as emanating from a person, place or thing’ – an appropriate name for a sustainable hydration alternative that delivers a unique luster, fashionable aesthetic and substantial user benefits. As the leader in the nascent category of “sustainable hydration,” Aura continues KOR’s innovation by melding great form, function and fable in a reusable solution that challenges conventional bottled water and promotes a reusable lifestyle that does not require personal sacrifice. KOR calls this product concept ‘Better Me, Better World.’
