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.
The final concept will be evaluated on how well the designer(s) can incorporate my requirements into the overall finished product. Is it slapped together and designed around the requirements....or rather is it designed from the ground up to conveniently incorporate these added functions....that will be the question I ask when evaluating.*** bonus points if you can cleverly incorporate a "fox" into your design, but not required. If chosen to do so, it will need to be simplistic in order to replicate, but have good taste.
Don't Wants:
a copy of something currently available, with a few changes slapped together. I have included a 2D drawing that I made with the basic principle of what I am looking for, however please incorporate your own style, don't be constrained by my lack thereof.

Just to be specific : you want a few renders of the new design? Just that or you want the SolidWorks file also?
What do you want us to submit : pdf, SolidWorks,etc...?
What is a "fox" could you also provide a picture or even a SolidWorks file of the "fox" please.
What size are the lipo batteries? Also SolidWorks file or atleast .PDF please
PCB Control panel also the same .PDF or SolidWorks if you can.
Thank you for your time

Electric Bycyle
A dynamic model for the performance and environmental analysis of an innovative e-bike The design should describes a performance and environmental analysis of an innovative e-bike by means of a dynamic model equipped with a suitable control for the management of the assisted drive of the e-bike.The main advantage of this approach should consists of the opportunity to simulate different tracks, e-bikes characterized by different parameters (total mass, wheels moment of inertia) and different control strategies.
Skull And Snake 3D CAD Design
Now that I have your attention I need an awsome 3D CAD Drawing of a Snake & Skull in a high-res STEP Format. It will be used for 3D Printing and also a graphite mold will be produced on a CNC Milling Machine. The mold will be used for casting silver. Attachment 1: Please use this as a guide for the position of the snake on top of the skull. Give as much detail and texture to the skull and snake. The detail of the scales on the snake are important. Attachment 2: A guide to the shape and detail of the skull to follow....... The color of the skull should be off white as on the sample attachment. The snake should have natural colors. I have 7 more interesting designs in the works...... This will be a fun and exciting project. Thanks Robert
Bamboo Pantry Organizer
Hi! We would like to ask you for your help to create a new pantry/cabinet organizer product for the market that will be made out of bamboo. Technical skill or experience with these elements would be helpful. We are looking for a high-quality design with optimum functionality. In the attached file, you will see details on what we are looking for. We want to ask you to use this guide to design a product that is unique, hyper-functional, and pleasing to look at. After the design contest, we want to validate our concept and bring the organizer to production! Deliverables. All CAD drawings showing everything. Please provide full dimensions for each side/element of the design. Also, provide images showing clearly each side of the unit (top, bottom, front, back, sides. 3D files as well. And static images of all the different angles sent separately.
