Flippin BBQ Beta Testing

Our engineers worked to design a gear and linkage mechanism to flip the food. To prove that the mechanism would function as intended, a proof of concept prototype was produced.

Based on the size constraints of the flipping mechanism and the "expected user features" that were found in the competitive product research, we created a series of aesthetic concepts.

To evaluate the size, shape, and overall aesthetic of the grill, we created a form study from foam and cardboard.
