Right so, I have been given the task of creating a prototype product using wood, metal and/or plastic (laser cut) to solve a problem in any area. I thought I might be able to create something which would solve a problem in the Esk8/Longboarding community but I’m stuck for ideas really… I have till the 26th of April to build it so not a huge rush but need to start thinking. I am allowed to re-create something which has been made if I make changes to it to make it better in any way.
Ideas I already have had:
Folding Longboard which would fit in a backpack or locker - Several companies have done this includingLinky (Folding Esk8) Some sort of metal bumper for longboard made from aluminium or steel which also acts as a riser pad (Too simple for this project but still thinking of making this to see if they work) Some sort of sling or strap to carry longboards - not 100% sure how I can make it complicated enough to take me a long amount of time to build and also how I can make it any different to any other products already out.
If anybody has any ideas of what I can make or has any problems that could be solved with a product, could you let me know?
Anything is appreciated Thanks, Doug
