iPad Mini slider case

in Gadgets Design held by guest
Contest Closed
We're looking to have a "case" or more of a "mount" designed for an iPad mini that we will be able to install (with various fabrication depending on the application) into the dash of a vehicle. In our opinion, the iPad will be held in with magnets that we will install post-printing. So there will need to be spaces designed onto the edge to allow for magnet application. Magnets will be 7.5mmx7.5mmx1mm and there should be enough mounting spaces for at least 10 of them. There will need to be a space for the lightning connector to mount (can be glued into place post-printing). Due to the lighting connector being permanently affixed, this is why the ipad will need to slide into place, so to mount itself on the connector. We have photos of a similar product attached to this listing.
The print will be made out of plastic, and the design should incorporate some "ribs" on the back of the mount for rigidity. The flanges around the opening for the iPad should be approx 1/2" to 1" to allow for mounting in various scenarios. We plan to make these black. This will be printed through shapeways.com, so the files need to be setup as such.

Accessory Clip for Glasses
I'm looking to create a series of fun accessories that can clip to the front of glasses or sunglasses. In this first design, the priority deliverable is the clip system to attach to the glasses. I am envisioning something like one or two S clip fasteners that would attach to either the nose bridge or each lens’ frame. The fastener would work similar to the way a money clip can be flexibly opened to insert cash and then returns to a snug resting position. See attached rough illustration for what I am envisioning. I am open to alternative fastener designs when the designer proposes a better system for connecting the accessory to the glasses. I am hoping that the fastener can work with both thicker plastic glasses, as well as thinner wire frame glasses. The accessory I would like to develop in this contest is a unicorn horn. It should be connected in the design to the fastener, so the end design is one, single piece.
