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.

QUICK-IN-EZ ALL IN ONE SCRUB GLOVER
Three years ago I was awarded a patent for a glove idea. The purpose of the glove is to scrub and clean kitchen counter and bathroom surfaces. The design of the glove consist of cleaning pads that can be attached to the inner palm of the glove and fingers of the glove.
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.
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.

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.
