Knee-based Travel Mug Holder - New Product Design / Prototype

Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
Description:
Commuters on buses and trains don't have cup holders, and so they are left with the balancing act of holding their travel mug in one hand, while trying read the paper or work on their laptops with their other hand. This sucks, causes spills, and is super uncomfortable. Commuters need something that's compact and foldable that can then open and attach comfortably to their knee (or another body part?) that will securely hold travel mugs of different sizes.
Wants:
- Something that is light and can be folded away in the commuter's bag or backpack and not take a lot of space.
- Something that accommodates a variety of travel mug widths and heights.
Software:
  1. SketchUp
  2. AutoCAD
  3. SolidWorks

#4 Cup Holder by jnatzic
This is a cup holder designed to fit around the lower leg of a sitting person. The black bands are elastic to secure the device to the leg just under the knee. The green band is also elastic and is used to secure the drink to the device. The red attachment on the bottom of the device folds up and down to fit in compact places. Being that the drink is secured with elastic it may be possible to use this device while walking as long as you have a container with a lid.

Hi,
This is only idea. The knee holder may be two variant: plasic holder or stanless steel holder. This holder is variable for any dimensions of cup: small, middle or big. If you like my design I can update according to your requirements.

Hi. I only own Sketchup and Blender, so you can build in whatever you'd like as long as I can then read the file in one of those (or another free, Mac OS X compatible) program.

Does the submission have to be in sketch up? Can I use solidworks?

Replicate Macbook Pro Cover
We are looking for someone to help us replicate a shell case for a MacBook Pro in a CAD format drawing that will function and fit the desired measurements. Our goal is to be able to take this design to a manufacturer for building. This case will include two parts: a top and a bottom. These parts need to be able to be built separately. Please see attached PDF for measurements This design should also be flexible enough to be adjustable so we can fit both the 15” and the 13” models. These models will be first produced in a CNC environment so the file must work within those constraints. The design should not include the bottom leg pads. The case we are looking to replicate is http://www.amazon.com/Speck-Products-SeeThru-Raspberry-SPK-A1498/dp/B00937DOEK We have most of the measurements but a second look would help. Wants: someone who either has a mac or can get their hands on one to see the coverture on the top and bottom case. Something that will actually can be produced. Main focus is on the 15" model case. Extra: additional Money can be earned if also completing the older version of the macbook pro case. also included in the PDF. 2012 version. $50.

Guitar Capo Design
We have created a game changing new version of the guitar capo. Our patent pending design eliminates the short comings of all modern capo designs. We have created what we call a "reverse nut" that keeps strings from binding in the capo. When the strings are bent up to pitch, they will return to original pitch without getting stuck in the capo. What we need: 3D CAD product rendering for prototyping. Capo Definition: "Musicians commonly use a capo to raise the pitch of a fretted instrument so they can play in a different key using the same fingerings as playing open (i.e., without a capo). In effect, a capo uses a fret of an instrument to create a new nut at a higher note than the instrument's actual nut. There are capo designs, but most commercial capos consist of a rubber-covered bar that clamps to the instrument's neck in some way to hold down the strings. Capos come in different sizes and shapes for different instruments and fretboard curvatures. The most relevant mechanical factors that vary by type of capo are ease of use, size, degree of interference with the player's hands, and ability to hold down strings uniformly without affecting tuning. Musicians use capos on many stringed instruments: guitars, mandolins, mandolas, banjos, bouzoukis—virtually any instrument that has strings suspended over a fretted fingerboard. Capos exist for square-necked resonator guitars, some of which do not contact the neck, but clamp above and below the strings." Wikipedia
