Shoe design

in 3D Modeling Design held by Dear Darling
Contest Closed
Description:
I am looking to explore the idea of "reinventing" shoes. I'm looking to create a shoe that turns from a heel to a flat. In order to do so i need a mechanism for the heel to flip out and lock into place from a groove on the sole of the shoe. The heel itself would be based on a lever where you can push the heel into a groove of the bottom of the shoe to make the shoe a flat. Then click it out using a very simple unlocking system on the sides of the shoe ( a bit like when you unclick the lid of a calpol bottle pressing on both sides) to make it into a heel.
Wants:
Ideally what i am looking for is a mechanism that locks and unlocks a heel into place using 2 buttons on both sides of the shoe to be pressed to release. The heel must have a 90 degree flexibility and support the weight of a woman when clicked into place. To bring the heel into its groove again to make a shoe a flat, i would like to use the weight of a person to press down at an angle onto the heel a bit like a spring (using their feet as a force) in order to lock the heel back in.
Ask for Sample:
A sample would be great with a paper copy with a diagram showing how the sample was assembled together.

Yes you can. Please remember the material must be durable, thin and strong to hold an adults weight

Workout Equipment
We would like to create a workout product that is similar to the attached image. However, instead of it being a fancy/expensive machine, we'd like to make a cheap version that can be easily folded/stored and used primarily at home. It is called a "rowing machine" so you can look up videos or articles on exactly how it is used.
foam roller
A foam roller similar to the triggerpoint.com My design has more foam and a much smaller PVC pipe. it also has a hollow PVC pipe stick with a handle permentally attach on one end and on the end of stick it would have a female threaded handle that would attach to the pipe. The pipe would slide through the hollow foam roller.
3D animation to showcase a pefume bottle and packaging design

Design a Dynamic Mini Golf Set!
Hi Cad Crowders I would like to have one of my ideas designed. It is a physical mini golf (putt putt) game that is made up of several pieces that can be assembled together in different combinations to create different playing surfaces. The mini golf game would be suitable for use for fun at in places such as homes, offices, garages and schools for fun and putting practice. - There should be around 12 - 15 sections/pieces in multiple shapes. - Mostly square shaped pieces, approximately 700x700mm - Some other shapes including triangles, semi-circles and miscellaneous which can be attached and used for changing direction. - Some pieces should have vertical rises and falls for added challenge in play - Some obstacles (basic cube or triangular prisms) for added challenge - Pieces could be connected by magnets - The course should be green coloured (like a putting green) - Design one of each of the following pieces: square, equilateral triangle, semicircle and a couple of miscellaneous shapes. - Each piece should be capable of joining to any other piece (i.e. the sides should be the same size) - The idea is that all sections can be attached to each other in many different ways so that there is a large number of possible arrangements for playing. The final piece should have a hole for the ball to enter as well as a small flag. The attached drawing is a VERY basic concept. The shapes are a top-view of some various shaped pieces and how they could possibly fit together to create a certain configuration for play. This is only one possible combination - the idea is that the pieces can be arranged in MANY different ways to make different games of varying difficulty. All the best! Thank you
