Manufacturing and Design II | James Bond Yoyo

Designed and created in a group project for MIT's Design and Manufacturing II class that teaches the fundamentals of designing products for mass manufacturing. The design of the yoyo is inspired by the gun barrel opening of the James bond movies. The James Bond yo-yo consists of injection molded and thermoformed parts held together by press fits. Small stickers replicated the silouette of Agent 007. The molds for each of the yo-yo's five components were designed in SolidWorks and machined in a CNC lathe and mill. The goal was to complete sixty yo-yos in less than one hour to replicate mass production.
