Problem: Face washing takes too much time and effort for lazy people.
Solution: We created Fast-Face to mechanize the face washing process.
First we examined some precedents for our project. To make our first prototype, we combined the ideas of headphones and the Proactive face washing brush.
Our first prototype is made out of cardboard, styrofoam, pipe insulation, straws, pipe cleaners, fabric, wire, and clear plastic tubing.
For our second prototype, we used different materials to improve the functionality and visual appeal of our design. We used a headband rather than pipe insulation, sponges rather than styrofoam, and we made it possible to roll the towel down and back up rather than just using velcro.
If we had more time and materials, we would have liquid face wash in the pipe insulation of our second prototype. A small amount of face wash would be mechanically sent through tubing and onto the sponges. The sponges would mechanically move around your face and rotate 360 degrees. The towel would roll up when you pulled down on it and then released it, similar to how a projector screen works.
