The goal of this sponsored studio project was to incorporate emerging technology onto a generator. An e-ink display was added to aid the user in use and upkeep of the generator. This was intended to resolve issues related to users not paying attention to the user manual supplied with the generator as well as provide a way to keep an eye on performance, fuel consumption, and power usage.

During the research phase, it was found that panels on existing generators were unsightly and often times created problems for performing maintenance. Some other unique features of the generator are the consolidated control panel, angled pull start, and swiveling front legs for mounting in a truck bed when wheels are removed.
