Now THIS is getting exciting! Our FabSlam Team's patience has paid off. After several weeks of learning, then brainstorming, iterating, ideating, (rinse, wash, repeat), got them their first 3D designed prototype of wait for it...a box. Not just any old box, one they designed to house the electronic components of the transmitter, power, and pressure sensor. Two groups were formed within the team, one responsible for the helmet electronics and the other working on the ATV (or any motorized vehicle) receiver components.
Team Helmet (as they will be referred too) finished an initial design that was left printing when they left (seen below). A locking lid, holes for the wires and power accessible. Love it!
Team ATV worked on a cardboard prototype that they got working with a servo to unlatch the door. You've GOT to see this video of it working:
From here on out it's testing & improving phase of the Design Thinking process! Patent pending....
