Hair lifting scalp wearBlind

Description:
Thank you for taking on our design challenge!

We are looking to create a piece that can slide into the hair and separate it creating more airflow for scalp health. Imagine something millimeters high that can be worn under a hat or scarf to prevent hat head. Ideally it would keep hair lifted and sorted to prevent bacterial growth, sweat, and flat hair. :/
It should also be able to take on some of the weight of the hat or scarf worn so the hair wont be crushed.
(I had made a head piece out of pipe cleaners going across my scalp from ear to ear and this helped make the hat/scarf feel weightless as all the little fingers of fabric held it up ;) But it didnt do much to help my scalp breathe.



The material needs to allow for antimicrobial properties as well as breathability as it will hold the hair in place, and when hat or head covering is removed, then piece removed, the hair will be voluminous and not crushed or flattened.

I know nothing like this exists, but the purpose of the product is to maintain hair health/ cleanliness and volume under coverings.

Ideas that entertain for material, design, structure and air flow will be asked to prototype in a second design challenge.
Wants:
The material used must be washable.
The design should be comfortable and take into account various hair textures.
Ideally it will hold onto hair without pins or clips.
Material chosen should reflect organic shapes of head and not try to change shape.
Extra points for design that includes material that is non-slip meaning if I wear a scarf on my hair, the product will somehow grip onto the scarf as well helping it to not slip. Keep in mind scarves are made of cotton, silk, chiffon so make sure the non-slip feature will not damage these fabrics once removed.

Hair support should run along the crown from the forehead to the back of the top of the head. See drawing.

Wearability should allow for easy removal.
Think: A headband motion that pushes from forehead back.

Designed product should not be seen under cap/scarf
Don't Wants:
heaviness
bulkiness
materials that are scratchy or that will harm scalp.
Sharp plastic points
Slippage
Ask for Sample:
I would really like to sample some prototypes but as this is my first challenge I will offer a second one for project completion. Please feel free to correct me or clarify further points.

Baby Spoon
I need a baby spoon that keeps the food closed inside the spoon so that it doesn't spill or open until the baby is ready to eat. Most of the time he is not ready to swallow the food. When he is pressured into eating, he has learned to swing at the spoon and knock down the food on the spoon. This spoon mechanical design will only open open a parent pressing a button for the spoon to open.
Am I Safe to Get a Haircut
In the coming months as US businesses open up, this does not guarantee people will come. We are seeing this in some of the EU countries. The streets are still close to empty. Small one-on-one businesses need a way to “demonstrate” to their customers that they will be “safe”. When you turn it on, this “box on wheels” will make the small room “negative” with respect to the other rooms or WRT the hallway. This guarantees that anything bad in that room stays in that room. It does this because inside is a small blower. The inlet of the blower is “in the room” and the outlet of the blower goes out the window This causes the room to “go negative” WRT adjacent rooms or hallway. If you were to put a small string under the door, you would see the string being “pulled into the room”. This “box on wheels” also filters the air that passes thru it using a HEPA filter. Then a small UV lamp is trained on this HEPA filter and the UV light kills the virus.
Coffee French Press
We are looking to produce a sleek, modern French Press, which is used for brewing coffee. Made of double insulated stainless steel with copper plated inner wall, the French Press should keep coffee hot for up to 3 hours. So thermal insulation is a very important design criterion. For this project, we're more interested in the external design (overall shape/look). Please feel free to be creative.
3D wall panel design
I am looking for a 3D panel design for manufacturing. It will be made of PVC and installed on a track system which i need designed as well. Current images of similar product available for the idea, buy this one is different in design and installation method. -I am looking to be able to install LED strips in the back, so should be able to have enough clearance to run strip across wall.
Smart display screens to be placed around the house
We need your help with developing a small screen (Oled) that will be used for displaying messages and information. The small screens will be used all over the house and need to be able (with different cradles or other solutions…) to be attached to cabinets (kitchen, laundry room, garage...etc) hang on walls, and stand on flat surface such as kitchen counter, table etc. More details of what needed as follow: Screens need to be either slided into different cradles for example: * A cradle with mini suction cups so it can be attached to flat surface such as kitchen’s cabinets. (Fig. A) * A stand cradle like different smartphone cases have so it can stand on flat surface such as kitchen counter, table etc. (See Fig. B) * A cradle to be hang on walls like a small picture, or using a magnet like this https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/studioproper/wallee-m-modular-magnetic-phone-mounting-system * A cradle with electric plug so it can be plugged into an outlet (On a kitchen counter etc.) and continue functioning while being charged https://www.prong.com (See also Fig. C) Or a better and prefered solution will be a design of a screen with all of the above (or as many options as possible). Like this idea for example http://www.weaseleasel.com/, but with the above options. Or some kind of a combination with this concept https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/oona/the-oona-whatever-you-need-it-to-be?ref=card *Screen need to be able to be attached/stand/hang both vertically and horizontally
