kick scooter

Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
Description:
I am looking to create an elegant and standout kick scooter that is ultralight and foldable, ( easy to carry on Subway/Bus ).
This product is to be marketed towards young adults and working proffessionals as a legitimate and sleek transportation tool. Getting you quikly and with very little effort from your house to the subway, grocery store or for a spinn with your dog. Both, the handlebars and the mast should be retractable and/ or foldable. The deck should be able to handle up to 250 pounds. The scooter should have propper brakes with calibers or disks rather than a simple step-on system. It should also feature a set of lights that will be powered by the wheels rather than a battery and needs to have a light and simple suspension in front and rear. The wheel design needs to be hubless.
Main competitors:
www.globber.com/en/scooters/my-too-kleefer

Wants:
Approx measurements
Width of deck: 6 - 8 inches

Wheel diameter: 7 - 8 inches
Wheel width:1 - 1,5 inches
Handlebar width: up to 18 Inches

Colors are up to you. Keep in mind that most competitors offer only one or two boring choices. Be creative.
Don't Wants:
Anything that looks clunky or as if it were designed for children. Visible brake cables.
Ask for Sample:
Brief samples would help me gauge each designer's skills. I plan on working on a fully electric version at a later point with same designer.
Software:
  1. SolidWorks
  2. AutoCAD
Additional Information
Hi there everyone.

A quick heads-up to all you talented designers.
Considering that I've had now so many great designs and that time is of the essence, I will cut the contest short by one week. Wednesday the 30th will be the last day anyone can send in drafts.
Until then, thanks to all of you for the amazing amount of hard work!

Best of luck, Alberto Rey

#9 Kick Scooter by Concadd
It is a fully functional design (not just a concept) with all the functionality integrated. Planning to fit in the brakes and the led light powered by the wheels. It can be folded like the kick type of keefler (a different mechanism). The frame is sturdy enough with welds and take good load with rough handling.

#15 Kick Scooter by Concadd
New design with all the features, the folding mechanism is new with a pull plug mechanism which controls pins against spring action. It can fold like the keefler mechanism (trolley type) as in the given reference. Handle bar torque is transferred to the front wheel via a slotted bolt. The LED requires a dynamo fitted to the front or rear fender. The front block can be diecast. Suitable standard bolts and screws can be used where ever required.
The whole load is taken by the front block which rests on the springs in the front, the vibrations are not transferred to the handle bar. Proper clearance to be given between moving parts. All metal frame welded to the ribs.

Any aspect of my design must not be used and or manufactured in any way and any cad files also must be deleted.

Hello there everyone,

I would like to thank every single one of you for all your hard work and patience.
It was a pleasure to get to experience the commitment and talent all of you displayed.
I know some of you wanted a bit more time. Due to a time constraint and the amount of participants I had to cut it short.
There were more impressive designs I would have wanted to give a prize to but I'm on a tight budged.
I will certainly keep many you as contacts - by invite only - for any future projects.
Feel free to contact me for any additional questions, suggestions and even criticism.

Thank you again for everything and good luck.

Best, Alberto Rey

Hello Ankit,

At this point it can be only a concept, although funtionality should be kept in mind. Once I have a winner, I'll be working with him/her on a manufacturable prototype.
Also, a quick headsup: This contest will end 1 week early - the 30th.

Thanks!

Thanks, Alberto

It might be better to pay attention about existing patents of folding bikes. I have seen some folding concepts used here are patented (Priority date 1999 Aug). So this means you can't use the same idea without paying to the original patent holder within 20 years of its validity period.

is it allowed to use Autodesk Inventor? FYI, Autodesk inventor is very similar with Solidwork and can be opened directly in Autocad

Hi Kurniawan,

Thanks for the input.
To answer your question, since this is still a relatively early stage in the contest, I'm more interested in a solid concept rather than a fully functional design.
In regards to the bearing for the wheels, I would certainly prefer a cost contious choice even though the scooter itself will be marketed as a higher end product within my competitors.
Please feel free to contact me anytime and good luck.

Best, Alberto
Fri, 11 Nov 2016 15:19:25 +0000
Hi Alberto Rey.
Are you looking for concept only or fully functional design also? Biggest challenge here is to find cheap and light weight bearing for the wheel. Are you prefer to use custom bearing (need long development with high cost) or want to use off the shelf bearing (for lower development cost).
Thanks,

Best,
Kurniawan

Adjustable Serving Tupperware
In theory, this is very basic. Although I am just a law student and by no means an engineer of any sort. My idea is to create a tupperware that has slits in a grid like form on the bottom and sides. Additionally there would be slits under the lid. With the grid-like slits, one would be able to put inserts in order to separate there food. with the insert going into the bottom, sides and the lid, there would be a nice seal from any liquids or foods mixing with the others. Obviously, the point of the grid is to be able to create different sized servings and adjust them from bouncing around. Basically, one could put a perfect compact cup of rice, another for veggies etc. The preserving tupperware current on the market do not allow this and one has to purchase a thousand of them. My vision is for it to be able 10 inches in length with a 5 inch witch and about 2.5 inches tall. The top of the tupperware and lid should look similar to your standard rubbermaid tupperware. the walls of the tupperware should not be less or more than 90 degrees. The corners and need to be rounded. The slits them selves should not be to shallow, for that would defeat the purpose of them. My estimation is that they would be about .5 centimeters. Because of the slits, the bottom and sides could/maybe/should form a ridge like surface. (think of ruffles) Lastly, the ridges, or slits should be continuous, at least in my mind around the entirety of the tupperware, which means the lid will need to account for vertical ridges along the walls of the tupperware and still be able to seal it. Although I will not prepay, being the cautious man of law that I am, payment will be given upon the winner being chosen. AND, in the event that my price is significantly low balled and outrageous I will increase it if no one in their right mind would accept it. Thank you.

Think out side the box, a new take on photo booths. Innovation starts here.
Greetings. As a commercial photographer I was getting sick of this DIY Photo Booth market. So I've spent the past 2 years prototyping different products to combine to make a reliable product to take to market. While doing this we built a company that would let our products be tested in the real world. This is my first time posting for CADCrowd so we will be as detailed as possible, if you need any more info please leave a public message or send me a private message. What we are looking for: We want to build a product that is innovative, stylish, light weight, collapsable yet durable. We are sick of seeing Boxes. We want a unit that is free standing and curtain-less. I would love a stainless steel or aluminum face, but are open to other ideas. We don't want the end product to break the bank when it comes to manufacturing so would like materials to be widely available. Height - We would like the unit to be at its tallest 70" would like it to have removable sections so hight could vary. Free standing Collapsable/mobile - END GOAL would love for the entire unit to break down in to ONE 1650 Pelican Case. Simply assembly - would like this process to go quick, maybe pins/magnets/dovetails maybe power integration from base to components. Durable - This unit will be on the go, seeing 50-60 party's a year, thats 10,000 - 50,000 potentially drunk people a year and would love to get at least 5 years from it. Stream line - think of apples clean cut designs, would love for it to feel simple, not threatening. Products: Specs Available online or upon request. HITI 510L Printer - needs side access for paper and ink, can only print on a angle of up to 30 degrees, would love for paper to come out on the front under/lower then the screen. the printer can be removable or bolted to unit. (consider break down) Windows surface tablet - needs to be accessible for touch screen, needs to be mounted flush or minimal clearance for clean design. needs access to power and usb ports from the back. Camera - standard DSLR camera. would like to have a 77mm UV filter mounted for the camera to touch up against. a dovetail plate would be great to let the camera move back and forth for different lens (up to 8" of slide) Lights - would like to place LED's and a flash tube on either side of the camera so we will need holes and diffusion plexi/plastic for this as well. we will most lily be making our own boards to mount so there aren't any specs on this yet. Adjustable angle mount - would like it if the tablet/camera/light were mounted together with a potential of up to 20 degree horizontal tilt. (consider whats behind the faceplate, don't want gaps where fingers can get caught. I hope this sums up needs and wants. I will include a quick sketch of our ideas to maybe fuel your inspiration.
