Products which dont exist but should

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi

I'm researching ski tuning and maintenance for my major project in Industrial Design degree and, strangely,have only just found this forum.

I was wondering if I could dip into the wealth of knowledge that must be here to find out what products are really needed. Could be big or small (although not too small - I have to spend 6 months working on it) or it could just be a common problem. Could be for DIY or shop tuning. Anything will be useful to me.

If you've got a particularly ingenious idea, but dont want to write it on here because its that good, brilliant. PM me instead. I'm not bothered about making money, I just want a really good project to help me get a good degree.

Thanks for your help

James

How about a base beveler that does both edges at the same time.

An iron that has a provision to dispense wax at just the right amount so there is less waste.

Speed sensitive bindings.

I dunno but if you figure this one out you might be able to make some money

These are two awesome ideas and in my mind (engineering student too) they seem pretty easy to accomplish, especially if you're just modeling them, rather then building it... not sure of the requirements for your project, most ID projects I've seen are just CAD renderings, or if they are actually built, they don't have to work...

The only problem with the dual base edge beveler is that it would need a way to expand and contract with the sidecut, and I could see this mechanism being unstable which might cause inaccurate beveling.

Interesting that you picked those two as good ideas and not the wax iron. The wax iron project is the one I had in mind as it seems fairly simple to make and doesn't seem to have been done before.

I do have to produce a fully working prototype of whatever I do.

Does anyone think a redesign of a wax iron would be a good idea?
