Einsteins Training PawsBlind

in Product Design held by Einsteins Training PAWS
Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
Concept: Create a device with the ability for a dog to put his paw on six different areas. Embedded in the pad or mat are proximity switches. As the dog places their paw in each area both words, i.e. Drink, Eat, Outside, Love Me, Play and Leave Me Alone are played along with an accompanied dog sound, background noise (or Bark, etc). They include:

1. Drink
2. Eat
3. Outside
4. Love
5. Play
6. Leave me alone

I would also link up via marketing with the current paw treat dispenser (marketing relationship), some have dual cameras so u can see them and they can see u and u can electronically send them a treat.


Imagine a hybrid of a puppy dispensing system above with the Einstein Training Pad. The dog steps on hungry or water
His bowls fill up
Gets a Treat

How many dogs are there in the US?
According to a pet owners survey, there were approximately 89.7 million dogs owned in the United States in 2017. This is an increase of over 20 million since the beginning of the survey period in 2000, when around 68 million dogs were owned in the United States. Number of dogs in the U.S. 2000-2017. Published by Emma Bedford, Nov 27, 2019. The statistic also shows the share of pet owners in the United States in 2016, by generation. In 2016, 35 percent of pet owners were Millennials. Baby boomers were the next largest generation of pet owner, with 32 percent. Statista 2020
It should be a dual power source battery or AC to power the proximity switches and to play the stored recording.
Don't Wants:
I believe in the KISS principle. So, a small footprint with less complicated design. No science projects.
Ask for Sample:
I would like a sample from each freelance. The best one will complete the project.
Additional Information
Dogs actually do see color, but many fewer colors than normal humans do. ... Dogs see the colors of the world as basically yellow, blue, and gray. They see the colors green, yellow, and orange as yellowish, and they see violet and blue as blue.

#21 Paw Pad Communication Center by PAD_Engineering
This 'Paw Pad' features a ruggedized injection molded designed pressure plates. Each pressure plate features a large 4x4 button that can be pressed by virtually any dog. Each tile is featured with a different texture and displays in large letters the expected sound that is to be heard. Each plate is removable so you can train your dog one word at a time and may add additional functionality in the future.
The electronic enclosure is large enough to hold logic board, speaker and battery while remaining small enough to make the entire set up portable. When required the 'Paw Pad' can fold up into a 6"x6"x4" cube, otherwise its foot print is 6"x39" if all buttons are utilized.
Tile design concepts Texture and appearance:
1. Drink: A translucent tile can take the appearance of water
2. Eat: Kibble suspended in epoxy will appear as food.
3. Outside: Green felt or AstroTurf to represent grass for outside.
4. Love: Two tone recessed hear shape.
5. Play: yellow felt with curved lines to represent a tennis ball for play.

#17 Einsteins Training Paws by Sam_Mayo Eng.
I've updated the material and some concept modification . The product material layered rubber(Layered rubber) which makes it easy to embed the proximity switches at the right position. Also, It is light weight and easy for handling in which it can be folded vertically and putted at any place. The pads are embedded with proximity switches which the layered rubber helps to minimize dead spots. Each pad have different color, and sound (with background bark voice) which is controlled by the monitor. When the dog presses the pad the signal will be transmitted to the monitor by the transmitter(2.4-5 GHz transmitter mounted in the mat). The monitor has a controller to receive signal from the mat( signal Decoding) and give the required sound ( through the speakers on the monitor). The monitor can be placed at any place with in the signal range. The controller can be programmed to add extra features like connecting with smartphones, smart home(Hey google and Alexa ) and other electronic devices(robots, CCTV) for effective monitoring and training . Rechargeable LI-ion battery is mounted in the mat and also in the monitor as source of power. Finally, It is easy for manufacturing, user friendly, flexible and simple.
I hope you'll like it!!
If you have any question about the design, let me know!
Thank you!!

#14 Einsteins Training Paws - Quentin Margeot - Rev.01 by Quentin Margeot
Hello !
I hope you and your close ones are well in these quarantine times.
Here's my take on your project. I designed a simple and aesthetic product, taking into account your idea of making it work with the paw treat dispenser. Therefore it uses similar materials and colors.
I made the whole product so that is is completely prototyping-ready.
I included a presentation, a drawing with the main dimensions as well as a 3D file (STEP format) of the assembly. You can have a look and have a good idea of how it all works.
I'd love to hear feedback if you have remarks that could help improve the design, looking forward to our discussion.
Have a great Friday !

Good day,
Please kindly look into the link you posted it appears to lead to a blank page, my initial design was based on research on your requirement maybe looking at the actual link will give a broader view on how to get the best design done for you.



Fri, 27 Mar 2020 13:37:44 +0000
Yes thanks, will work with those.
Tue, 24 Mar 2020 22:11:26 +0000
I got two questions:
Speaker integrated or bluetooth connection is fine?
Water wise are we talking about a quick sip or filling a full bowl?
Thank you in advance
Tue, 24 Mar 2020 10:43:45 +0000

So, is can be anything between 18 to 24 inches (height) by 24 to 36 inches (width). Does this answer the question?
Tue, 24 Mar 2020 10:37:59 +0000
Sorry. 18-24 inches by 24-36 inches



Tue, 24 Mar 2020 06:38:41 +0000
Then what unit are your measurement in, so we work to specification as in size



Tue, 24 Mar 2020 06:35:44 +0000
I would love to get some clarification as to the measurement you dropped, please specify what the measurement are for, and which of them the present way it is written creates some sort of confusion.
Mon, 23 Mar 2020 00:35:04 +0000
A sample or a enhancement of the concept I have supplied would be great.

Seems like interesting contest. But, don't know why I can't open the link. Are you only looking for any conceptual ideas first for this contest ?

Sheet metal fabrication design
We are a start-up design company based in Mullingar and supported by Enterprise Ireland as a HPSU. We require an experienced solidworks engineer to complete various sheet metal components in flat sheet and folded. Initially we would require in the region of 20/30 hours service which may be extended.
Quick Access Sun Stations
Quick Access Sun Stations is a self service sunscreen station placed throughout outdoor venues such as theme parks, water parks, state parks, zoo's, golf courses, ski resorts, etc. The Quick Access Sun Stations provides sunscreen through a hand held device (think of a spray tanning gun) which the customer will direct and spray on themselves, in the areas where they need skin/sun protection. The station will be a 4' square footprint with hand held devices placed equal distances around the station. There should be enough space for 4 customers at a time, allowing application of sunscreen to the skin that is exposed. The machine is equipped with a method to accept credit card or mobile payments (via a mobile scan or entry of a confirmation code). The station needs to allow the customer to select the level of sunscreen protection they want (there will be 2 protection levels). Sunscreen will be stored in 2 different reservoirs which is contained internal to the unit. I am looking for a product design encompassing the features I outlined above. I would like to see a prototype of the machine mock-up, both the external (what the customer will see) and internal (what the sunscreen servicer will see). In the mock-up a small divider between stations (to prevent overspray) and a matt under the entire unit to prevent slipping should be visible. The stations will require power, access either under the machine or some place that doesn't limit the space for the number of hand held devices. A self powered station would be ideal but not sure it is entirely feasible.
Pet Wearable
We are seeking designs for a pet wearable band. Which will encase an oval shaped device that will go on a pet collar. At this time we are seeking some creative designs but not the actual 3D printed versions. We have attached a few photos of what we are seeking; including a version that would be a bow for a female and bone for a male. We are open to other concepts and ideas. The oval in the middle of the designs will house the wearable.
Interchangeable Battery Adapter Holster Pack - Industrial CAD Designer
Hello, I need someone to help me make a interchangeable battery clip adapter where these Ryobi batteries (found from Home depot) clip into each other as seen in picture It must be able to maintain enough room and functionality where the electrical terminals make proper contact. The batteries in the picture are laid out exactly how I want it to clip into each other. Just fill in the space between the battery with the housing that I need for you to design. I also need an access port about 7mm in diameter. The designer must already have access to these batteries which are common from home depot.

We have recently purchased an older site furnishing manufacturer and would like to introduce a new and more modern product line. http://street.woodcraftdesignltd.com/ Please feel free to visit the current website to see our existing products. We primarily want a Park Bench Waste and recycling receptacle A lighted bollard Later on adding a Poster Pillar and a Bike rack Our chosen new line will be put into production and therefore will need to be Modern,lightweight but durable,as maintenance free as possible and not too complicated to manufacture and assemble. In our existing product we use the following materials Steel and Aluminum for structure Cedar, Ipe and Oak for seating Our most popular bench size is 1800mm We would like to incorporate composite materials for a seating option (bearing in mind we have had issues with composite sagging in heat We would like to compete with companies such as Maglin and Wishbone Our existing products do not have any CAD drawings included and this makes it more difficult for us to be specified in by landscape architects. We are not sure exactly what they require and any guidance in that would be appreciated.
