Description:With Nuvoic Home, we aim to build a prototype of the world’s first smart speaker for users with speech and motor difficulties, allowing them to interact and communicate independently with others and their surroundings via their own, unique voice.
In this EU-funded project (voiceitt.com/nuvoic-project), imec partners up with the Israel-based VoiceItt to incorporate their state-of-the-art dysarthric speech recognition software into a smart speaker. The goal is to (a) investigate which technological possibilities are available by contemporary standards and (b) adapt the device following a design thinking philosophy to ensure a match with the target group.
People with speech and motor difficulties need to be able to interact with the smart speaker via their own unique voice. Auditory feedback is given via an incorporated speaker. Visual feedback can be given via a LED-ring which resides on the PCB of the microphone array (see further for details). They often have a secondary user which can help them in assisting functions such as installation of the device and one-time setup steps.
All things concerning authentication, registration and others where a screen is needed, will be done on a separate accompanying device and are thus out of scope of this design contest.
For the first prototype, we have yet to decide on the design of the speaker enclosure. The main components have been identified in a first iteration of the project, with exception of the specific touchscreen.
In attach you find some personas we created for the intended users (primary group) and the assisting persons (secondary group)
By organizing this design contest, we hope to receive several possible designs for the smart speaker that (a) allow to integrate the components specified below and (b) fit well with the restrictions and specifications imposed by our particular target group. The design submissions will be presented to our project partners and an expert panel, who will rate them on a couple of criteria: feasibility (do all the parts fit into the design), aesthetics (subjective opinion on the look and feel) and fit with the target group (ease of use, simplicity and UX tailored to users with limited fine motor skills). At the end of this review process, we will award the winning design(s). The winner and first runner-up of the contest will receive a total sum of $100.
Wants:Wants: A SKETCH OF THE DESIGN OF THE SPEAKER IS SUFFICIENT
The smart speaker has a number of design requirements:
1. The casing needs to take into account the following criteria:
A) A small hole for the power supply (standard smartphone adapter)
B) A Seeed respeaker mic array v2 (wiki.seeedstudio.com/ReSpeaker_Mic_Array_v2.0/) inside the box, with openings so the sound can enter from all sides. A LED ring on top of it would be nice to remain (partly) visible. Be attentive to a USB + 3.5mm audio jack connection on the board
C) A Raspberry pi 4B (www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/hardware/raspberrypi/mechanical/README.md) should fit in the enclosure with extra space for generated heat
D) There should be a speaker (such as the visaton FR8 www.visaton.de/en/products/fullrange-systems/fr-8-4-ohm) placed inside the enclosure.
2. There are no further specific design requirements, except that the speaker must be suited for indoor use.
3. Please provide sketch or 3D model in non-proprietary file formats (e.g., jpg, pdf, STEP, OBJ, STL)
4. Nice to have: reasoning for design if there are particulars to the design (design choices, what's the rationale behind it)

Locking slider for dog & cat collar
We want a lockable slider design for manufacturing. When using the dog or cat collar, the collar webbing itself is sometimes not fixed in the same position and is slippery due to its material (say if it is made of nylon or other soft / shiny material), it can cause danger to pets if it moves apart. Cats may scratch and tighten their neck as a result. So we need a locking slider that can hold the webbing in place. It needs to easy and safe to use, not causing danger to pets.
Convert hand drawn elevations of a house into autocad. Very important, some of the elements and or materials on the sketch might not be drawn accurately (i.e roof tails or corbels, roof tiles, columns etc. The final product is expected to be professional. Attached are the scanned Elevations and feel free to request CAD floor plans, roof plan and sections for reference.
Mold design to make Carbon Fiber Supercar Engine Cover
Race Car Engine Cover Mold. +/- 2 or 3 mm - does not need to be perfection. I have pics and dimensions. Hoping you can scale it off the pics unless you are Local (Atlanta). I will be available during the design for extra pics of measurements. Hoping this will be a 3 or 4 hour draw for some one. We will take the drawing and cut a mold from foam on a large CNC Router and lay up in CF or FG. Here is a link to pictures. https://exoticsalvage.com/02-lotus-esprit-rear-engine-lid-liftgate-db004627
Tyler Food Truck Park
We have a vacant lot that we are planning to launch as a food truck park. We need design ideas for the layout of the food trucks (6 trucks). We need to figure out best method for getting trucks in and out of the property each day. Each truck needs to have a pad for parking with electric service. We also need to design an outdoor seating area for the food truck park patrons. Covered seating is a must. Picnic tables and sunblock structure with ceiling fans. Also, we need a small structure on the premises for a management office for the park (very small - one room), a small cabana style opening for a bar and two restrooms attached for guests. We'd like the perimeter of the food truck park to be enclosed with only one way in and out for guests and of course and in and out land for trucks. The park will be on the two adjoining lots shown on the attached survey and elevation. Please draw to scale!! We don't have any set-back limitations.
Suspended carbon fibre hammock bath
As part of my home renovation I would like to create a stunning and comfortable carbon fibre hammock bath, which will be suspended by two wall mounted supports. The bath will be manufactured by taking the 3D CAD model created by this design contest and creating a wooden blank using a CNC machine. The wooden blank will then be wrapped in carbon fibre cloth for strength, waterproofing and aesthetics. I have some dimensions, weight specifications and other requirements such as the location of the bath filler, bath waste, water pipes and head rest.
