Smart display screens to be placed around the house

in Consumer Products held by Tom Amidwin
Contest Closed
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

* A cradle with electric plug so it can be plugged into an outlet (On a kitchen counter etc.) and continue functioning while being charged (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, but with the above options. Or some kind of a combination with this concept

*Screen need to be able to be attached/stand/hang both vertically and horizontally
*Screen size around 4” X 3” X ¼” (About the size of a small smartphone)

*Battery options are rechargeable battery (Please show micro usb port), or a coin cell battery.

*Please show On/Off button

*Please show Led light notification on top or bottom of screen (See Fig. D)

*Please show this image (Fig. E) on screen
  1. Any software you use

#9 Device with multipurpose mounting by fadli
I have designed a device with multipurpose mounting including : vertical and horizontal in floor/table, vertical and horizontal hanger, magnetic mounting and electric plug. the main idea from me is the locking system that support one mounting system can work in horizontal and vertical position.

#1 SMART DISPLAY SCREN by zyrone levantino
The design is simple and elegant looking. The cross in the middle serve as the magnet and also act as a cover for the electric plug. The idea is putting the magnet along the case to retain the elegant look. It will look cheap if the plug is seen with the device though the idea doesnt make it expensive. Please dont hesitate to give a message if you want any changes for my design. It can stand horizontally and vertcally. The two violet serve as a stand. opening bot will make the device stand horizontally. The color and materials can be change and is not the final output for it can be made to diffrent materials and colors and even textures.

hi Tom, I have submitted my design in the form of a powerpoint presentation, the models are all done in Autodesk Inventor and I can supply the model files as Inventor or 3ds Max files.

The idle is to have one multi purpose mounting so the device can be mounted on walls, cabinets, flat surface...etc), but if you can't come up with that kind of solution, then different mounting devices (one for hanging the device on walls, one for attaching to cabinets, one for putting on flat surfaces etc...).

Thank you.

only one mounting or many mounting?

Only the device's shell and screen, which should be based on the dimension we provided in the description or thinner than that, with an On/Off button and a micro usb port for charging.

The mounting system can be either a multi purpose one (so it can be mounted on walls, cabinets, tables...etc) and either as part of the device, or with an option for simply slide the device into the mounting system or attached it somehow. Or different mounting systems (where the device can be slided into or attached to somehow) such as one mounting only for attaching device to cabinet surface, one system for hanging on walls, one system for putting on flat (table, kitchen counter) surface etc.

Let me know if you have additional questions.

Are you wanting someone to design an entire electronic device or just a mounting system for an already existing device? What kind of tablet, smart phone, etc would you want to run with this system?

Money Storage Bank Bins for Kids
Hi, I am looking for some design ideas for a money storage bank bin for kids. It's a different twist to the traditional piggy banks. I will eventually need to create a 3D CAD of this so that I can create a prototype for it. It will need to have 3 bins designated with 1) Save 2) Spend 3) Share. I envision the approx size of the container to be 5x7x2, clear, that opens up with an attached lid, and on the outside, will be a ledger where it will be used to track withdrawls and deposits. These 3 containers will then need to be placed into a larger single container. Easy for kids to open, close and carry.
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.
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.
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.
camalapse mini
We are looking to add another product to our successful camalapse 4 product offering. The camalapse mini will operate using a similar internal mechanical/spring wound timer that is in the regular camalapse 4 ( but it will not have a female tripod mount on the bottom and instead of a male 1/4 20" male post on the top, it will need a feature/mechanism to hold a smartphone securely in place. The overall concept of this device is to operate exactly like the camalapse, but to be as small as a form factor as possible (fit safely into a small purse or large cargo pocket) as the target market is entirely focused on smartphones. At a minimum, the smartphone holder needs to hold the smartphone with a variety of thicknesses (with and without cases) in landscape mode at a 90 degree angle from the horizontal top surface of the camalapse mini. Bonus if the smartphone holder can also achieve a 45 degree angle. Big bonus if the smartphone holder is able to hold the smartphone at any angle but the mechanism to do so is simple and easy to manufacture. We will need to build a complete prototype, and will probably use shapeways to print all plastic parts so we will need files from the winner that can be used for 3D printing (during contest) and later for injection molds (after prototypes are successful). If metal parts are needed for concept, please advise where they can be purchased in small quantity online with links. The design does not need to mimic the octagonal shape of the camalapse 4, but some element of design carry over would be nice as this will be an additional product that we will want to leverage the success of the camalapse 4. We say this because the octagonal shape creates a larger form factor which we are trying to avoid. Camalapse 4 website We have included many pictures of the timer mechanism which the camalapse mini needs to be built around. We have added dimensions as best that we could. Please ask if you need more. Individual questions will be answered both individually and for the group.
