Revolutionary Meditation Bench

in Concept Design held by guest
Contest Closed
Description:
A standard meditation bench made of wood gets a makeover. We are looking to create a fully-adjustable, lightweight, travel version of a wooden meditation bench for manufacture via injection molding (plastic).

The bench consists of 2 legs, of the same size, 7.5 inches tall. Atop is a main sitting piece, which is at right angles to the legs and is 18 inches long and 7 inches deep. All parts are ½ inch thick, or thinner.

The bench needs to be able to support the weight of an adult.

The main sitting piece (piece “A” in the sketch) needs to be rotational such that it can be tilted forward in order to create an angled seating platform. This adjustment is to conform to the seating angle of the meditator to create comfortable sitting position. The piece must lock out once in place at the desired setting, in order to provide stability while sitting on it (aka it does not move).

The legs must also be foldable (collapsible), such that they fold in towards the main sitting piece in some manner, in order to make the bench small and practical for travelling or storage.

The collapsed final bench should be ideally 1 inch thick, or thereabouts.

Here is a link to what a "standard" bench looks like. This is for reference only--not what we are interested in designing:

Ruggedized "Case" for 3D Scanner
We are looking to produce a custom ruggedized "case" for a professional 3D scanning instrument. This instrument is often used on construction job sites, and the threat of damage due to drops or falls is quite high. We envision a 1/2" dense foam "cage" of sorts that will fit over the body of the scanner. Please see the attached 3D model, video and pictures for a more complete idea of our needs.

Kettle Bar
The Kettle bar is an adjustable kettle bell with the ability to fit standard weights plates to add and remove weights for the user. There is a requirement for 2 different types of handles, a simple T-bar for 2 handed kettle bell movements and a secondary handle for one-handed exercises. Both handles are to be interchangeable for the single bar type.
