Industrial Design of a Hand Pulse Detector

Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
Description:
We are looking for a industrial design (outlook) of a hand pulse detector. This device will consist of the following.

1) Two metal plates on the device that will come in contact with hand when grip on it. This will form a closed circuit between the plates and thereby detect the electrical pulse from the hand (refer to attached for the existing device). Ideally the area of each contact surface of the metal plate should be more than 2000 square mm.
2) A micro USB port for charging the battery.
3) Power Indicator
4) ON/OFF switch.

Internal design of the device is not necessary but must cater enough room to house the below
1) 1500 square mm X 1mm (thickness) PCB
2) 750 square mm X 4mm(thickness) battery.

The design shall be in 3D CAD.
Wants:
- Think out of the box, and open to any type of style. No need to follow the existing design (see attached)
- Ergonomics, easy of hold and cater to all sizes of hand.
- Aesthetics pleasing in term of form & color, and originality are to be valued. Visual design is important here. IT MUST BE COOL !! - we want to evoke a visceral reaction to the device
Don't Wants:
- No sharp or clunky edges.
- Non-manufacturable designs and complex designs
- Cheap plastic look & feel
Software:
  1. Any 3D CAD
Additional Information
There will not be a cable connecting to the device, only the USB port for charging. The size of the device need to be portable.

Please note that we are looking for something that think out of the box, and open to any type of style. No need to follow the existing design. It can be like a shape of pebbles stone or something ergonomically friendly that can grab around. Important thing is it must look cool - we want to evoke a visceral reaction to the device.

It would be good to have an illustration to show that the size of PCB and Battery can fit into the device.

#23 Hand Pulse Detector V2 by Pablo Gosso
Hi lesterngbp
Attached Concept 2
Following your specs for look & feel I also use same strategy, Iconic shape, easy to recognize. Minimalistic and good design rules with some small texture details just to add a subtle design flavor, this time the details are in the soft plastic parts, leaving the metal plates clean to appreciate the shapes.
Hope you find it suitable for your product,
Looking forward to your feedback, Pablo

Apologies, no more new submission will be considered.

Those with Nominate or with 4 stars are qualify for the final round selection and you are welcome to refine your design with more details like the manufacturing consideration or material selection.

Thanks for all your submission and appreciate your time and effort put in.

As of now, I have shorted listed for the winner. No new submission will be considered as the contest is closed. The reason for the extension is to let the short listed designer to have the time to refine their design as this content start till now is very short, only weeks till now.

Let me know if you have any question or concern. Thanks

I agree with Adriano 135 entries surely one of them is good enough to be selected. Cadcrowd should be charging money for an extended contest..after all, time is money.

I do not think it's right to postpone the challenge again.
Everyone here has put a lot of effort into their designs, based on a predetermined deadline.
If a desired product did not appear yet, you should give better feedback as to what you are really looking forward to seeing.
  I bet everyone here agrees with what I'm talking about.

() Complicate profile and need to put more thought on the details - e.g no metal plates

Hi Adam,

The thickness of battery and PCB is petty much fixed as stated. The area is given as a guide for you to cater enough room for the component, so it can be any size as long as it is within the area (sq. mm) specified.

Would it be possible to get the width, height, and depth of the battery and the width and height of the PCB, or can it be any size as long as it is within the sq. mm's specified ?

Ergonomics is a concern when griping due to the profile. Aesthetics need to improve.

Faith Based Jewelry_1_Christianity
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).
The ROBERT project
We would like a fresh set of eyes on our device ROBERT, a rehabilitation robot that release healthcare workers of heavy and continuous lifting which can cause physical strain and pain in the back, loin, wrists and shoulders. We aim to optimise rehabilitation through more frequently and prolonged exercises which can result in fewer complications and a faster retrieval of a patient’s strength. See more at www.myrobert.com. The current look is a mixture of many components comming together which does not result in a uniform design. Further we whish to incorporate a new robot arm, made by the company KUKA, the LBR iiwa version, https://www.kuka.com/en-de/products/robot-systems/industrial-robots/lbr-iiwa. This will later come in a MEDtech version, similar in use but in white and with a small change to the interface base. CAD data of the industrial version can be used for this design, change is that wiring will come out of the bottom of the medtech version and not the sides like the industrial version, so completely round in base instead of the small square thing on the side of the industrial version (so no visible wires). The industrial version can be downloaded here: https://www.kuka.com/en-de/services/downloads. It is the "LBR iiwa 14 R820" found under division "KUKA Robotics".

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.
