Kodak Ektalite Microfiche Reader


Kodak Ektalite Microfiche Reader

Industrial design by Steve Hines.



      As the industrial designer, Steve’s objective was to create a compact desk-top reader for microfiche.  The minimalist approach seemed best, to basically shrink wrap the optical path to minimize the product size and the desk top foot print, with the addition of an integral handle at the top.  The device incorporates a concave Ektalite screen and a contrast-enhancing filter, and is assembled primarily of parts snapped or adhesive bonded together, avoiding any visible screws.  

      This product is not for sale by HinesLab.  This project is shown only as an example of past industrial design by Steve Hines who currently offers consulting, photographic equipment design, as well as a variety of licensable technology.
