Danielle Bullock has joined the team as our student intern. “I originally began at BYU studying graphic design. I realized that I wanted a slightly more engineering-based field of study and began investigating areas of study within the school of Engineering and technology. When I found industrial design It kinda just clicked for me because it was the perfect combination of the visual arts and engineering. I love working in 3D and solving real life problems through design.” Originally from Colorado Springs, Co., Danielle is excited about Austin’s art and music scene and is on the hunt for the city’s best taco.

Fahrenheit Design worked with Dell to develop the design of the x1008. Intended for use in a small to medium-sized business environment, the small, stackable form factor allows for improved flexibility in positioning and mounting. Featuring eight 1 GbE ports with PoE (Power over Ethernet) it can be placed on a tabletop or mounted on the wall, or hidden away under a desk. The fanless anodized aluminum housing acts as a heat sink, with the ability to share housing between POE and Non-POE Models.
SunPower recently introduced the new Equinox Home Solar System. SunPower teamed up with Fahrenheit to develop its new microinverter and EnergyLink wireless management system.
