Do you ever wish that you can do all your assignments on a Kindle-like screen?

Problem : Long exposure to light-emitting devices can cause severe discomfort and compromised body functionalities in photosensitive individuals.
Solution: A blue light filtering (fl-41 and short-wavelength), semi-detachable, paper-like
3D Modelling a flexible living hinge with seamless movement when animated was the biggest technical challenge for our team. Eventually, we mated the cover and base exclusively through connecting spines, then rebuilt the assembly every time we shifted the position of the cover relative to the base to achieve this seamless animation of a flexible hinge.
Harmful wavelengths of light for photosensitive patients can be categorised into 2 different groups:
MW: 480-550nm (FL-41 migraine glasses on the market)
We would need to come up with a new range that offer protection from harmful light in the lower frequencies.
We initially were stuck on the idea of having a flexible screen protector made of PET, hence we tested multiple mechanisms, such as a suction mechanism and a rolling mechanism to get rid of the air bubbles. However, after we stumbled upon the idea of having a rigid, tempered glass screen protector that closes by magnetic forces, our design was simplified greatly.
