Breathing aid for saxophone

in Product Design held by ZachSanders

Description:
I have an Idea for a product which teaches beginning students to correctly insert the sax mouthpiece while playing and maintain proper breathing technique. The basis for this device is an incentive spirometer, which is already often used by wind instrument players.

This company has the same concept as me. I would like to take that concept and put it in a more compact and aesthetically pleasing device. The device will be made of hard plastic. Anything instrument related incorporated into the desighn will be nice.

I will provide pictures of my BASIC desighn idea. I would like for the desighner to play around with the shape and form. But the elevated angle where the mouthpiece is inserted MUST be incorporated to allow the user to be able to blow and also view the ball. Also, the tiny built in ledge on the top front of the mouthpiece must also be incorporated as it will force the student to put the correct amount of mouthpiece in his or her mouth.
Wants:
The device must allow the user to see the ball while also blowing

Play around with the forms but the general shape of the mouthpiece should stay the same. As long as the body of the device incorporates the concept shown in the link
provided , I am fine with different shapes.
I would also like to incorporate an airflow change switch somewhere on the device which would allow the student to decrease or increase the air allowed through.
Don't Wants:
I will accept any idea that I like, as long as it incorporates the two ideas.
Ask for Sample:
Yes
Software:
  1. One that would allow me eventually 3D print.

Just one touch up for flow control and this should work great.

#16 spiral_spiro by vrobotics
This has almost accurate dimensions as required for pipe, mouthpiece and contains a flow control knob and fulfills requirements. The user can easily see the ball and can have better ball control and precision because of reference set by spiral. This is modification of previously posted design. It can be easily 3d printed and is easy to assemble and disassemble.

I plan on using some type of hard plastic.

What kind of material are using for 3D printer? If It is not plastic material, should have some design suitable for that material

Removable/twisting top part design for refillable 2 in 1 botlle
The bottle will have 2 chambers. At the top of the bottle 2 dispensing caps marked (1) of the type that is attached on a separate picture. The bottle is refillable and for easy refill the top part marked (2) will be either completely taken off or twisted sideways being attached at the centre somehow. The top part must sit on the bottle very tight so no liquid can leak outside or from chamber to chamber. We are looking for the best solution how the top part can be attached to the bottle.

Phone Case with some mechanics
The case needs to be a functional case with two tracks: BASIC IDEA MODEL LOCATED BELOW (non-proportionate) The phone measures 123.8mm x 58.6 mm x 7.6mm The phone is an iPhone 5s The screen which is inches measured 4 inches diagonally must be unlocked on BOTH sides of the case i.e. (if I was to talk the phone out and flip it in the other side of the case the screen wouldn't be covered). The side where the power button is should have nothing on to of it. the tracks need to be 4 inches long with a 3 inch track inside the 4 inch track (Radio antenna idea). The tracks need to be hinged so that they can both stand up 90 degrees of the case and lay flat (it's okay if they cover the back open area). there needs to be a wheel inside the track that moves up and down the track vertically the wheel needs to connect outside somehow (like below) the wheel needs to follow the track to the bottom of the platform where the wheel will sit so that the hinged track does not hold the wheel when it lays down. any futuristic or modern design is accepted, however creative aspects are totally left to you as long as the design is functional.

We would like to follow the colours of this band as it gives the idea of safety and of been rugged: https://toughphones.net/product/mtt-smartwatch-protection-tough-smartwatch/ The size should be close to 47x31mm but can be a bit different.
