Shoe design

Contest Closed
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.
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

Liver Shell
Design should be of a liver shell. It should be an anatomically accurate model that can be printed if needed to. The inside should be hallow and the liver should include a hole on top where the hyper-vein would normally be and a hole on bottom where the vein would leave. The liver shell should be a 2 piece design that can be clicked/ screwed together to symmetrically put together the 2 halves. A more simplified version of this will be perfect.
