Recently, through a connection to the industrial design department made possible through OSU’s STEAM Factory, we are one step closer to a full-scale muyuchina prototype! The Muyuchina project involves a Quechua verb wheel that enables users to explore the agglutinative nature of Quechua language by playing with suffixes to build meanings around a root verb. Our project has received funding from the Innovation Studio’s Design Competition to build a full-scale wheel in 180 Pomerene Hall.
Recent graduate, Micah Unzueta, and sophomore in Industrial Design, Easton Nguyen, are collaborating with the Innovation Studio to build this prototype.
This is what their first design may look like:
