auto-tuning radio

in 3D Modeling Design held by Jun
Contest Closed
Description:
I have a provisional patent and am looking for help to make a prototype. The device should have two digital tuners controlled by a computer, each capable of receiving digital radio signal and digital ID co-broadcasted by radio stations. The computer uses one tuner to scan radio frequencies and sorts available radio signals based on station name, program genre, and music group. This device should be able to find a radio station based on station name rather than by frequency. Some national radio stations such as Public Radio broadcast on multiple frequencies on overlapping terrains. In a moving vehicle, when the signal deteriorates on one frequency, this device should be able to use the second tuner to scan for better signal and achieve seamless transition from one frequency to another without interrupting the program by switching the roles of the two tuners.
Wants:
A functional digital radio receiver capable of:
1) tuning in to a radio station based on station name, program genre, or music group co-broadcasted by radio stations;
2) maintain the best reception of a radio station broadcasting on multiple frequencies.
Ask for Sample:
If you can put together a functional prototype, I will reimburse you for material costs in addition to the prize, plus 10% share of the patent.
Software:
  1. any

That sounds great. Please check out this paper by Gautam Das and Udayan Umapathi:

The main modification one would need is dual tuners controlled by a CPU instead of a single tuner, and the software code for tuning by digital ID instead of by frequency.

i could help you to make a functional design. Im a product designer and ill be glad to talk with you.
we could present a 3D model with functions frist and when it will be approved , we could start to make a protoype.

all the specifics are listed above and in attached ppt slides. It should be quite doable for someone with EE background. I need a working prototype and will pay for material cost plus price money.

No contest is taken seriously until its "payment pending".

yes, it is open contest. We need a design to demonstrate the feasibility of the concept.

Server 3D Explosion
I need to have a server created to match an existing piece of art, which is an exploded touch screen. Unfortunately the designer is no longer available who created the exploded touch screen. The design should match the look at feel as much as possible and use the same colors and style to show an exploded 1U server.
Stair climber
Problem: Many people who are dependent on crutches have a difficult time navigating stairs. The risk of falls and severe injury are considerable, and in the acutely-injured or post-operative patient, these risks are oftentimes compounded by pain, post-operative dizziness, and narcotic usage. Most patients who are concerned about falling scoot up backwards on their buttocks, using their palms to propel them up one step at a time. Solution: A padded rectangular box that spans two step risers with a handle to lift it up to each successive step. The device is largely rectangular and the lower-step portion is wide and flat enough to allow it to be stable when on a flat non-step surface, such as a landing. Design parameters: Legally, stair risers must be between 6 and 7.5 inches in height, with a width minimum of 22 inches. A typical step is 11 inches in depth. The lower stair portion should be at least as long as the upper stair length, to make standing on the device while on a flat landing more stable. The device should have multiple 1/2" slide-in/click-on element for the upper stair portion to adjust for differences in stair heights. This is not currently in my drawings
Mobile Tool Cart
New model of mobile tool cart which may cross industries such as manufacturing shop floor, motorsports, hospital maintenance etc. Consider using the maximum volume of the footprint for storage. See attachment for list of must have and nice to have as well as an example of what we build today.
Stylish, minimalistic pencil case
We are looking for inspiration and designs for a very minimalistic, yet stylish pencil case, which will be produced out of (paper) pulp by extrusion. The case should have a lid, either attached to its body or separate. It also should have some kind of clasp, in the broadest sense, to secure the lid and prevent it from opening. Could be a clamp, clip, rubber strap or anything that serves the purpose. Also, the lid's surface should be mostly flat, because we plan to print on it. Dimensions for the case should be roughly H65mm x W190mm x D30mm. There are two design approaches that both could lead to viable results: A: The attached image "Sample A" shows a product that is VERY close to what we envisage. You could simply modify this example in its details, in order to create an equally minimalistic, stylish product that still differentiates itself to a reasonable degree from the depicted sample. B: Create something from scratch. There are many examples of pulp-based containers available, we have compiled some examples on image "Sample B".
The Steam Punk Jet Engine F3
Looking for someone to design a cool graphic for my Formula 3 race car. The idea is to render the image onto a 3D image of the vehicle and tweak it until everyone is happy. I'm working on having a 3D image done in CAD as we speak - but would like to start the creative part by soliciting ideas on what kind of images might work on the different parts of the vehicle and how it all ties together. You will see in the attached powerpoint what kind of concept I'm after (Bugatti, VW, etc...), steam punk, jet engines, etc... and you'll also see picture of the actual F3. Again, this will work best once I have a 3D version - so this first round is all about finding cool artwork and figuring out what goes where. I DO want the sheet metal pop-rivet look (from the Bugatti) as the main them for the F# with cut-outs similar to how it was done on the VW to expose the guts. I also think that the large engine cooling shrouds on each side of the vehicle could be jet engine, possibly with small flames shooting out of the vertical breather fins - but that's just one idea. I welcome any and all other ideas.
