Description:
We have a few STEM / STEAM (science and tech courses for kids) programs we are designing for, including a miniature radio controlled racing drone. They should run off of a single rechargeable A or AA battery or rechargeable easily found (commonly available) battery. Need designs for the computer controllers (Arduino or similar), software, simple radio remote control and system, electric motor systems, and drive systems engineered. We have the basic frame shape. We are looking for simple, field serviceable designs that kids can take apart and put together and use to learn these technologies.
Just like everyone, we want it ASAP.
Wants:
Size; Body about 8-10 CM, 3-4 inches long. Motor struts can project out from this shape.
Shape; Based on our logo shape, attached as a JPG. Two basic plates (upper and lower plates) can be 3D printed or cut from carbon fiber sheets.
Battery; A single A (7 hao) or AA (5 hao) rechargeable, or other commonly available battery.
Drone; 4 rotors, attachable prop guard, stable flight characteristics (so will need sensors and feedback system to dampen instability).
Basic flight commands and control characteristics;
1 - Take off slowly to 1 meter high by simple radio control button.
2 - Land slowly straight down by simple radio control button.
3 - Forward and back by simple radio control.
4 - Turn left and turn right by simple radio control.
5 - Up and down by simple radio control.
6 - Alternatively, can be controlled by mobile phone.
7 - Up to 4 racers can race at a time controlled by different locked radio channels. Better to have a physical hardware switch to lock drones so they can’t be interfered with in flight.
8 - Does not have to be the fastest drone, ease of handling is preferred. This may be the first learning or training drone many kids touch.
9 - We will launch an additional contest to put a 720p camera with recording for FPV flying on this later. This design is a basic line of sight training racer.
Don't Wants:
Cutesy little talking toy.
This is a fun but serious learning platform, not a novelty product.
We want kids to learn about software, radio control, electric motors and drive control systems plus aeronautics and flying skills for electric drones. We will also teach them good sportsmanship as we compete with the final products.
Ask for Sample:
If you can produce a working sample, we will pay for it at a reasonable cost.
Software:
  1. Simple open source is fine.

Wow! it is an interesting contest, but it is a pity that is not committed to pay, nor be attentive to the proposals!:V

Can you please rate the entries that have already been submitted? I'd be happy to make revisions as soon as I get feedback, and I'm sure my fellow designers would be as well.

Balance Stepping Toy for Kids
I am looking to manufacture balance stepping stones(set of 6pcs per example). I am looking for an innovative, beautiful and entertaining design. Product intended to use for both indoor and outdoor by 1-9 year old. Product must be resistant, slip-free... Ideally, I'd like to have one single shape (One mould) rather than multiple shapes. But I am open to getting suggestions of multiple shapes if they really stand out. Please check google "Balance stepping stones" to see existing designs in the market. I have attached a few designs as an example.
Fruit Dog Toy Design
Hello--I am looking for designs of a SOFT dog toy where the dog needs to interact with a piece of fruit (the toy) that has it's name embroidered onto it and a voice comes on to encourage the dog to do the task. For example, a banana --the peel would potentially be held up to the stem by Velcro as intact and the dog would have to peel it with his/her teeth. Maybe there is a spot for a treat inside. When pressure is placed on the piece of fruit, a voice comes on to say "Peel Me!" "Peel the banana!" The idea is to make it fun for both dogs and owners. Owners to chuckle at the voice prompts. I also want them to have different sizes in XS, S, M, and L.
Wooden Stacking Rocks for toddlers and kids
Hi, I am looking to create a set that contains innovative stacking rock shapes. I am looking for about 3 to 6 different shapes. Each set will include all the shapes in different quantities(for example, 4pcs of shape 1, 6 pcs of shapes 2...). Here are the specs for the shapes: - Must respect the following: smallest side is bigger than 31.7mm. If the smallest side is smaller than 31.7mm, one of the other 2 sides must be higher than 57.1mm (see for more details https://www.cpsc.gov/Business--Manufacturing/Business-Education/Business-Guidance/Small-Parts-for-Toys-and-Childrens-Products) - Current designs in the market stack only according to z-axis. I would like the shapes to have the ability to stack mainly according to z-axis, but be able to slightly according to x and y-axis(Think about Eiffel tower for example). This allows to enhance creativity and build stuff. - IMPORTANT: Stability: Ability to stack several shapes against each other. For example, ability to stack a combination of a combination of 20 pcs from different shapes according to Z axis. - No weird shapes or lego like - Think about production cost: The smaller the piece would, the less material it will use. Feel free to design a big shape if it is really important.
Design of a new Robotic Character t
Hi there, We are a small robotics startup that develop robotic toys. While we are able to do all the mechanical, electrical and software development, we do not have any artist onboard to make our robots look fantastic! So we are looking for someone with expertise in 3D modeling and product design. This is not a one time gig, we are looking for someone we can collaborate on the long term. Your job will be quite simple: We will provide you a CAD model and you will have to design around it to make it look nice according to our directions. For each project, we will expect to first see some sketches (you ll have 1 week for that) and then once we have reviewed them and pick one, you will be designing the 3d model (2 weeks for that). The first project will be to design the shell of a humanoid robotic toy. Again do not send anything till we have picked someone and provided CAD model and design directions. In order for us to pick someone we will need two things: - First, the more robot design you have in your portfolio and you can show us, the better we can appreciate your style and capacities. - Your hourly rate or per project rate. We are quite in a hurry to start the first job, so please reply quickly. Thanks!
