Hi Ridwan,
Thanks to everyone who participated in our contest. Many of the submissions came in during the final days of he contest so in order to be fair to everyone we waited until the contest end to make a decision. You can see that the second place finisher was actually the 65 th submission so every design was given consideration in our process.

Hi Ridwan
Thank you for your interest in this contest. The dimensions refer to the maximum screen size versus the maximum size of the device overall. We don't want to stray too far from conventional mobile phone dimensions.
Thanks Ron

When we create the luxury smartphone, are you wanting us to make the interior stuff to? Like the battery compartment? Or, where screws go?

Hi Simon
If whatever you are using can export in wire format that would be best but the alias packages we use can accommodate many formats. If yours is supported then it won't be a problem. We are looking for concepts, the production design will of course undergo refinement.

Stop Sexual Assault in the Work Place - electronics enclosure housing design
There are many details and priorities in operating a business. The safety of customers and employees are assumed until something goes wrong. Sexual assault is a preventable human behavior in the work environment and by using artificial intelligence coupled with a variety of sensors, this risky behavior can now be prevented. Team members and your clients can and will be kept safe. Given the sensitivity of the problem, a well designed enclosure is critical to adoption and acceptance of the AI being resident in the ceiling of a business. AI monitoring of people is still a relatively new idea, with products such as Alexa, Siri and Google dominating the commercial landscape. In a business environment, the business owner would want to eliminate any friction to the customer experience. As such, our ceiling mounted AI device, (her name is MARIA) should present a soft feel as well as look like a high end tech device. Anyone who participates in this design effort is thanked. Your design will be publicized and your personal brand will have significant recognition from this work. You are providing your time and effort to help combat the serious problem of rape, assault and misconduct in professional settings. Hopefully you have never had to wrestle with the experience and if you have, know you will prevent the experience from happening to someone else. Know that your work is moving humanity forward and adding historical value. Again thank you.

Futuristic Panic Button
- we'd like to design the most powerful panic button in the world - It will be attached to a keychain / purse / phone and trigger a help response from your phone via bluetooth - once pressed, a drone will be sent to you in under 5 minutes to help responders triage this situation - we want to minimize accidental triggers while making it easy for someone who needs help to quickly get it.
