Description:
High level, I would like to produce Covid Masks from a Hemp fabric that are fashionable, with a Copper Mesh as the breathing apparatus. The copper can be the entire face plate or just the mouth and/or nose.

The mask has to be very comfortable and easy to wear and to clean/wash.

Copper has many anti bacterial/anti virus benefits, and many cooling benefits. Hemp fabric also has cooling benefits. The Copper needs to be a type of mesh so it is easy to breathe in and out (vs. through the fabric, which creates heat).

The copper component needs to be breathable (small holes through the mesh) or some other approach.

One challenge is breathing out air into a mask creates Heat. A HUGE innovation would be if there are way to Cool the Mask (w water, a fan, etc) -- anything to keep the person wearing the mask cool.

These products will significantly improve health outcomes. In addition, they will be positioned as fashion statements -- so the Cool factor is very important.
Wants:
Design quality, functional ability, Comfort, fashion/style, and ability to produce samples quickly to produce the launch product affordably (on a per mask basis), and at scale. Also interested in exploring new ways to support the mask on the head (vs over the ears). Most interested in out of the box, innovative ideas...
Don't Wants:
derivative designs and ideas
Ask for Sample:
Not a requirement but would be a Huge Plus!
Additional Information
My intention is to help millions of people by producing a type of "mask", that keeps viruses from spreading (via the sender) and keeps people from getting infected (from the receiver).

The product does not need to even be a Mask. It can be any apparatus that keeps a person from breathing in their own carbon dioxide, which creates heat and poor circulation of air. As a simple example, place your hand in front of your mouth and breath out - it is very hot. Then place your hand in front of your mouth and breathe in, it is very cool.

My theory is that Masks, as currently imagined, may be creating health problems for people and also, they are not entirely optimized for preventing health problems. Current masks make it difficult to breathe in easily, and create a sensation of heat on the exhale -- both of which are bad for one's health (particularly the elderly).

I am most interested in ideas that come from Nature (Biomimicry). There are many examples of metals that have anti-bacterial properties (copper, silver, etc.) and many examples as to how animals and plants ward off disease. biomimicry.org/asknature/

If there is an opportunity to somehow include water in the solution, that would be of interest -- think baby wipes or misters.

High level, the apparatus must result in:

1) Health -- preventing the spread of a virus, as it relates to inhale vis a vis infected people and exhale, so as not to infect others
2) A cooling sensation -- so that a person is not enveloped in hot air from their exhale
3) An ability to inhale clean air easily.
4) Fashionable and Comfortable -- people need to Love the product in order to use it. We must create an innovative and fashionable product in order to help people help themselves.

It should be only fabric material or plastic or other material also can we use.

this Design seems like a good Approach to address the Comfort issue around the Ears -- essentially, a variation on the Comfort of Wearing Glasses: https://www.yankodesign.com/2020/07/26/this-face-shield-worn-like-glasses-is-designed-to-keep-you-fashionably-safe/. let's see if we can then think of a comfortable way to incorporate Fabric in the Front -- loose fitting vs tight around the Face for more airflow. And, some method to have a mesh or breathability with the Nose and Mouth. Simple and Elegant --- that will be the Winning Design! Send ideas and questions -- we will Choose a Winner this by End of Day Friday!!

Hi Brett,
Thanks for your feedback on my design and I appreciate your sense of design judgment. You have observed a very good point of generating pressure and rashes on-ear with existing mask.
So resting the mask string on the head is a good option. We can use a plastic molded mask holding buckle with string tension adjustable provision because over a period of time string elasticity gets loose. There are some other ways also for holding the string on the head with high value addition.
Opening at nose and mouth can be modified suitably looking at the breathing comfort and styling. This can be improvised with user feedback while developing the mask. Creating different types of opening will make more variant of the mask and will give more choise for customer.
Hope above point are fulfilling your requiremengt. Please let me know if any further improvement/correction required.
Thank you!

I really like the Design - Very Modern!. Can you imagine a more comfortable way for the mask to be supported over the Ears/on the head? Existing masks are uncomfortable, with the string creating pressure and a pinching sensation on the ear. Perhaps there are other methods to support the mask on the face that does not create pressure on the ear. I prefer an opening at the Nose and Mouth so it easy and enjoyable to breathe in and out. We will choose a winner next Wednesday. Thank you!

, Giga, I really like the direction of: 1) having a comfortable way for the mask to be supported on the head (in your implementation, a circle over the Ears. Existing masks are uncomfortable, with the string creating pressure and a pinching sensation on the ear. Perhaps there are other methods to support the mask on the face that does not create pressure on the ear. I also like the Opening at the mouth, for an easy breathing sensation in and out... We will choose a winner next Wednesday. Thank you!

Design the coolest penis rings
We already have a successful line of vibrating penis rings, to get an idea visit http://www.ovo.de/en/category/rings. The new line will be different, though, ovo is a line created with a white, clean, mainstream concept, the new line will be branded LooP. "LooP Maximum Performance"will be inspired in sports and concept cars, men worldwide appeal very well to sports cars and performance is always related to them, therefore, sexual performance can be inspired in sports cars. Designers need to take the following into account: 1. Vibrating penis rings must meet their promise, they deliver orgasms by stimulating both, men and women during intercourse, designers must think of the ergonomics of sex, the ring constrains the flow of blood to the penis but the part that holds the motor serves a double purpose, it indirectly stimulates men and directly stimulates the clitoris, so successful designs must consider an elevation of the part that holds the motor. 2. I envision these rings as a fusion between the ring and a sports car, the front of the "car" is the ring and the hood holds the motor, the elevation that will get in contact with the clitoris is the "windshield" and the hood, the vibration from the motor will diffuse to the "windshield" and the "hood" the back of the ring is just pure design. 2. The material is medical grade silicone as it is stretchy and tissue safe, this also means the following constrains: Silicone is matt finished, attaining a glossy color is somewhat difficult but not impossible, there should not be too many elements in the ring as these rings perform in a "wet" environment, bacteria can get inside the joints of different layers. 3. I want 16 different rings, each of them inspired in a sports or concept car, we will have suggestive names for them like "Loop Stealth", "LooP M3", "LooP Viper", etc. Finally, Have fun, I think it's an amazing project!! PS. Attached is our number one selling penis ring from the current line, that will give you an idea on size, weight and motor positioning. Also, I have attached a preliminary logo, the symbol you see is the celtic symbol of virility which could nicely be used in the rings the same way sports car have a symbol on the hood.
Inventor product block maintenance
We have a large number of CAD blocks representing our product range which require alteration. The work is quite straight forward but high in volume. There will be a number of weeks work with the potential for ongoing work. An understanding of the vault filing system used for Inventor would be an advantage but is not essential.
The interior of wooden houses
Hi! I urgently need to make the visualization of the interior of three houses. It's actually quite simple. All you need to do is just apply the material of wood in the interior (floors, ceiling, beams, etc.) In some images you will need to make the fireplace, as specified in the example. I attached 3 ready models with the camera settings. And all the other additions you will find in the attached file. In the example, there are all images which correspond to the name of each house. Unfortunately I can't give more information, because that's all I was given by the customer. But if you carefully view all of the attached material, everything is clear described.
Le Mans LMP1
I want someone to design a Le Mans Prototype, and I prefer the Toyota Hybrid TS030. This is a personal project to build it as a hobby. I want to build the body out of fiber glass by making (milling) molds with a CNC router machine using a 3D software. I am a fabricator, so it will be easier and preferable for me to build (weld) the chassis out of aluminum or steel, whichever you think will be more recommended for building a chassis.
