Designing AI-Driven Daily Space Life Solutions

The ENTA Student Commission is thrilled to invite industrial design students to participate in a unique and engaging competition that will showcase their ability to learn and apply AI tools in the design process. This competition is your chance to envision a thriving future in space and design products that will make life there not just possible, but enriching.


Imagine a future where humanity has ventured beyond Earth, establishing thriving communities on space stations, lunar outposts, or even distant planets. This competition challenges you to design innovative products that will become essential tools for everyday life in these new frontiers.

Focus on the User:

  • Develop a detailed user persona living and working in this off-world environment such as a scientist, engineer, artist, entrepreneur or a new profession.

  • Consider their occupation, hobbies, challenges, and aspirations. What makes them unique in this extraordinary setting?

Design for Daily Life:

  • Identify a specific action or routine - perhaps gardening in zero gravity, creating art with lunar dust, or enjoying a virtual connection with loved ones back on Earth - that this persona would perform regularly.

  • Design a product that enhances, simplifies, or even invents this action, making their life in space more fulfilling and productive.

Embrace AI and Innovation:

  • Integrate Artificial Intelligence as a core element of your design. How can AI assist the user in using the product, or even become a partner in their daily routine?

  • Think creatively! Utilize new materials, fabrication methods, or even biological processes to make your product truly unique and suited for the off-world environment.

This competition is about creating a vision for a better future, one where humanity thrives beyond Earth. Let your imagination take flight and design a product that will become an essential part of life in the cosmos!
