#18 Cardboardpoopholder by Ram Mohan Kartha
I have designed a poop holder that is make from a single piece of card board that can be folded and made functional by the customer itself. How it can be made is shown in the pdf file.

#19 Poopholder2 by Ram Mohan Kartha
I made this design considering quality as well as easier productivity, could be made by using paper or card board. The dimensions i have given are based on cardboard of thickness 1 mm. The advantage is that it could be made from a single piece of cardboard making your need of producing it in 1-2 $ possible. It needs sticking tape at 2 positions that also have bee shown in the pdf file provided. I can upload the orginal model file in any format if you need
Hope you will like my work ....Thank you

#20 poo bag by DaBu
This is a model I created myself from a A4 sheet of cardboard and a piece of rope. I thought that this is the only way to approach your problem: a 3d model wouldn't be as convincing. If you think I might have something here (if you like the design) I can work on it to improve functionality (dimensions, ease of operating, etc ..) and i'll provide you the CAD drawing for cutout and crease.

can it be a fusion of plastic and card board where the poop is collected in the cardboard part and only that part is thrown away after use. The plastic part is used again.....????

Hi Jnatzic

Would be a one-time product

>Bio-Degradeable is important...why I think Cardboard / paper best.

>Easy to assemble...perhaps sold 'collapsed'. And user 'pops' open to use. easier to build / transport
>
>I think it is important that it is not too large when assembled and used, as users will want to throw away in bins made for dog droppings (they are not that large)
>
>Needs to be reasonable 'air tight' so doesn't smell too much on the way to the dustbin.
>
>I was imagining something that maybe had a cardboard box / tube with two cardboard handles that could be dropped over dropping, then the handles pulled to close bottom of box and scoop at the same time.
>
>But maybe that might be too complex too design?
>
>I will be guided by you.

I feel the crux of this project is to get a really functional design that is not too complex to mass-produce at around $1

Will this be a one-time use tool or will it include doggy bags or something that makes it reusable?

The ROBERT project
We would like a fresh set of eyes on our device ROBERT, a rehabilitation robot that release healthcare workers of heavy and continuous lifting which can cause physical strain and pain in the back, loin, wrists and shoulders. We aim to optimise rehabilitation through more frequently and prolonged exercises which can result in fewer complications and a faster retrieval of a patient’s strength. See more at www.myrobert.com. The current look is a mixture of many components comming together which does not result in a uniform design. Further we whish to incorporate a new robot arm, made by the company KUKA, the LBR iiwa version, https://www.kuka.com/en-de/products/robot-systems/industrial-robots/lbr-iiwa. This will later come in a MEDtech version, similar in use but in white and with a small change to the interface base. CAD data of the industrial version can be used for this design, change is that wiring will come out of the bottom of the medtech version and not the sides like the industrial version, so completely round in base instead of the small square thing on the side of the industrial version (so no visible wires). The industrial version can be downloaded here: https://www.kuka.com/en-de/services/downloads. It is the "LBR iiwa 14 R820" found under division "KUKA Robotics".

Faith Based Jewelry_1_Christianity
We are a start up launching a line of jewelry based on faith/religion. We are looking to launch with a number of necklaces and bracelets so we are looking for highly innovative designs for pendants and bracelet charms which signify faith based meaning. We want our jewelry line to be worn everyday (not just on occasions) as a charm so that one is never without the blessings of one's faith. We want it to be an essential companion to a user, through thick and thin, to give them the reassurance that one is never alone. We expect: 2 designs for necklace pendants 2 designs for the bracelet charms The designs should be made for metal (sterling silver).
Unicycle
Hi all, thanks for checking out my contest! I am involved with a company that is looking to receive some entries for a "prototype" electric unicycle. If you aren't familiar let me give you a brief background. Remember the hoverboards last xmas?? The electric unicycle works on essentially the same principle (upside down pendulum theory) to achieve self balancing capability. The current offerings on the market just don't cut it, the plastics are basically thrown together around the requirements of a build, rather than incorporating the necessary components into the design for a smooth finish. I would like the final product to be somewhat futuristic/prototypish looking, maybe a bit sporty. You can get a feeling for whats out there by doing a google search for "electric unicycle". Integral to the design there are 3 requirements. 1.) Obviously the plastic fairing will need to have a cavity for the wheel, but in addition, it will need to subtly include a space for lipo batteries, (doesnt have to be in any particular shape however), and also must include spot for a pcb control board. Both of these items arent excessively large, the PCB is about 4X3 inches and the batteries are about 5X5X1 (but can be reconfigured). 2.) I would also like to incorporate into my design a headlight, and a tail light if possible, but most concerned with head light. Would also like to leave the option open to include small bluetooth speakers, however these would not take very much space at all. 3.) Finally, this design will need to have a retractable handle for balance when getting on/off.
