Description:
This consumer product is an accessory that provides enhanced usability to mobile phones and tablets.

The latest design of our "Band" is two parts:
1. Round Base that attaches to the back of the phone (made from a low-friction polymer like polyethylene)

2. A "band" that overlaps with the Round Base (1) and rotates/spins around it. (made from polyethylene over-molded with rubber to provide elasticity to the top band part)

The rubber part of the band elongates so that an individual's finger can be placed underneath the band and above the base. The elasticity part is important so it can accommodate different finger sizes.

The product allows users to hold the phone more securely.

Our current challenge is the design of the "Band" (2). This is where we need the help.

As shown in the attached STL file for the Band, there are two circles on either side of the flap that holds the finger down. These circle were put there to provide some added elasticity to the rubber piece.

While it does functionally work well, the current design does not look durable or very elegant.

We'd like to rethink the band design to make it look incredibly user-friendly, allowing the band to stretch upright to accommodate different finger sizes, while being functionally superior to the current design.

Designer will need to provide STL files for my prototyping company to be able to work with.
Wants:
Looking for:
1. the most aesthetically pleasing design
2. One that considers usability (user sliding in their finger and feeling secure)
3. Understand the implications of tooling design -- we don't want to have to make an injection molding tool that is massively expensive due to a complicated design.

Dear MAS,

I would like to take part in your contest, I just have some problems with opening your STL files. Could you please upload parts to the attachment in other formats than STL?

Thank you in advance,

I have just uploaded the "base" STL. I did not realize that I had not included that in the original STL files.

Here are the parts explained:

## Band ##
HEB v2 rigid - The rigid part of the "Band"
HEB v2 - The soft/flexible part of the "Band" (The rigid part is over-molded with rubber to make this stretchy component of the "band")

## Base ##
Base X4 - The part that attaches to the phone. This part is inserted into the "band" through the side opening.

We are a start up launching a line of jewelry based on faith/religion. We are looking to launch with a number of necklaces and bracelets so we are looking for highly innovative designs for pendants and bracelet charms which signify faith based meaning. We want our jewelry line to be worn everyday (not just on occasions) as a charm so that one is never without the blessings of one's faith. We want it to be an essential companion to a user, through thick and thin, to give them the reassurance that one is never alone. We expect: 2 designs for necklace pendants 2 designs for the bracelet charms The designs should be made for metal (sterling silver).

Unicycle
Hi all, thanks for checking out my contest! I am involved with a company that is looking to receive some entries for a "prototype" electric unicycle. If you aren't familiar let me give you a brief background. Remember the hoverboards last xmas?? The electric unicycle works on essentially the same principle (upside down pendulum theory) to achieve self balancing capability. The current offerings on the market just don't cut it, the plastics are basically thrown together around the requirements of a build, rather than incorporating the necessary components into the design for a smooth finish. I would like the final product to be somewhat futuristic/prototypish looking, maybe a bit sporty. You can get a feeling for whats out there by doing a google search for "electric unicycle". Integral to the design there are 3 requirements. 1.) Obviously the plastic fairing will need to have a cavity for the wheel, but in addition, it will need to subtly include a space for lipo batteries, (doesnt have to be in any particular shape however), and also must include spot for a pcb control board. Both of these items arent excessively large, the PCB is about 4X3 inches and the batteries are about 5X5X1 (but can be reconfigured). 2.) I would also like to incorporate into my design a headlight, and a tail light if possible, but most concerned with head light. Would also like to leave the option open to include small bluetooth speakers, however these would not take very much space at all. 3.) Finally, this design will need to have a retractable handle for balance when getting on/off.
