KLEIN 2-Way Radio

Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
This is a small desktop 2-way radio. Instead of having it on your hip, or a big bulky dispatch radio, this is the size of a portable radio in a desktop box.
Make it aesthetically pleasing, but also a product that would be easy to 3D print or at least not overly expensive to tool.
Don't Wants:
Not sure if there is anything we dont want.
The attached image we made in photoshop. It is horrible but gives the concept.
Company Logo:
  1. no requirement here. We need to see JPG for initial review

Slanted the speaker towards the user. Slimmed the speaker down to being almost flat (currently only 1/64" high) i can make completely flat if needed. Added grooved area for the push to talk button.

Here is a very rough draft of the design, it is basically the same as the sketch that you supplied. I just wanted to create a base and get some feedback from you to guide me to the perfect design. How detailed do you want the design? as far as fitting and mounting the internal electronics. I look forward to hearing back from you.

What do you think about this design? The logo is on there just as an image for now, but I will make sure it is embossed on the final draft (tracing the logo is time consuming). The attached folder contains images of all of the sides.

#7 DESK_RADIO by Pamelazaldumbide
I tried to develop a model most both simple and aesthetically possible. It consists of a plastic case conformed by two pieces, a flat one in contact with the desk, on which the radio relies, and the upper one shown in the picture with all the holes need to allow buttons to emerge. The shell of this radio is designed to avoid square corners, the purpose of this is to save material and also favor the ejection of the part from the mold of plastic injection. Each Volume and channel buttons have been simplified into one trying to have the least amount of holes in the casing so the plastic injection mold design might be simpler (less pins). At the inner part of upper case, some reinforcement ribs should exist at the curved edge of every button hole in order to give the case more resistence

Hello, this is my second entry. It is very similar to my first one, I only changed the colours and the design. The dimensions are the same. It is a modern an futuristic design made out of ABS plastic. It would be a very simple product to manufacture (plastic molding).
Feel free to ask any questions or give me any suggestions regarding this competition. Regards, mcluka

we are looking to design a casing that will hold a BLE chip and NFC tag the product will be adhered to or clamped onto the likes of entrances to malls, bus stops , inside of taxi cabs, on board trains and buses and adhered to ATM machines.
Angled Keyboard Slide
The design requires a clean simple method with minimized parts and manufacturing costs. Product is low volume, 250 to 500 pieces per year. We are interested in minimizing capital tooling costs. Design challenge is to design a keyboard slide platform that sits at a 32.5 degree angle (see attached documents). Keyboard slide needs to easily lock in upward position when not in use, and needs to easily be released and slide downward when in use. The keyboard slide is on a cart platform, so when the cart is being moved around, if it gets bumped, we do not want the keyboard slide to dislodge and slip into the down position.
Hydro-cooler bath CONVEYOR project
Project is to design a conveyor system to transfer a range a products into a hydro-cooling bath, and then transfer the product through the bath and out the other end. Attached is a some more notes of the project and images of the products. The contents of the Pails and Bladder is hot Jams and Sources etc. Currently we don't know the thickness of the bladders when fill of the products but we can find this out once we have awarded the project. The attached files are only ideas from our customer, they would prefer to have the maximum time of immersion in the bath. Max floor space available is 8m, so as close to 8m of immersion would be ideal. Someone that has done work with Hydro-cooling bath conveying or works for a company that builds this type of equipment will be a great help. Please let us know if you require more information from us before taking on this project.

KLEIN radio
A rugged 2-way radio without the bulk. View our current walkies at www.headsetusa.com and our rugged android phones at www.sonimtech.com. We need to design the look of a new 2-way radio to be true military spec yet not bulky with large "bumpers". Our goal is waterproof and able to be "dropped of a building" and not break apart.
