The Project We are designing a product that will be worn on the body as either a wristband or a clip-on type device. It needs to contain a small replaceable battery, printed-circuit board (PCB), Bluetooth chip, and an activation mechanism. We are not yet sure about how the activation mechanism will work. The idea is that this device can be used in an emergency to send a signal to a phone or other connected device. It could be a simple button, a rip cord, a latch held on with magnets, or something entirely different. Design Requirements We need some CAD renderings showing different looks, form factors, and activation mechanisms. PCB Engineer We need someone to design the internal hardware. The device needs to receive input from the activation mechanism and then send a "go" signal to a phone connected via Bluetooth. It will be powered with a simple pill or watch battery. At some point in the future we will want to build in an accelerometer, but for now we just want this basic functionality. General Requirements We need this product to be reliable, durable, and high quality. We have kept the design requirements simple to reduce cost, but the most important aspect is that it can survive day-to-day use and will never fail. It cannot break when dropped or work intermittently.

Looking for someone that can: 1. Design an efficient, battery operated 12v motor controller to perform specific time related on/off functions. 2. Build a small footprint prototype and ship to me. End Product: Floating Duck decoy that pumps water at timed intervals to create lifelike motion. Batteries, motor/pump, and controller to be housed inside decoy body. Controller Design specs: Take a 12v battery supply (most likely 8 AA alkaline batteries) Have on off switch to activate controller. Once controller is activated: It will turn 2 pumps on/off in pre-programmed time intervals on continuous loop until turned off (timing scenario to be given upon hire). Option 1: Single motor output. Option 2: 3 way switch for Low-Med-High level output To recap: I am only looking for the controller(PCB) design with Battery -input and motor(s) output terminals: Prototype and ship to me.

My company is developing a custom vending machine and we are looking for engineers (or an entire team) to help us design it. We will likely need to fill the following roles (one person that can cover multiple roles is great) Mechanical Engineer Electrical Engineer Hardware Engineer Refrigeration Engineer We will be developing the software and UI/UX ourselves. Experience with vending is ideal. We want to create the machine with as many "off the shelf" parts as necessary. So engineers/designers with a knowledge of available vending parts would be extremely helpful. Also anyone who has a background in researching FDA compliance or Robotics would be a huge asset. We'll be providing info for the team about what the vending machine needs to do. The team will need to work together to identify parts and design the machine accordingly. More info following an NDA for qualified applicants.

We're a startup team that just acquired significant funding to develop our first minimum viable product. We are looking for a talented individual who develop an action camera following our specifications. Note: this job will not be easy. You will however be allowed to remain as part of the MARKIS team as we scale and grow with us if you can prove your talent from the start. A team of multiple product designers, electrical engineers and prototype developers will be considered for the job as well.

I am needing someone to help complete a design for a tablet like device I have come invented. I already a 3d modeled prototype but I a needing further changes adjustments to make a realistic product that works both in a physical form and digital, if possible. I would also like to get a list and idea of cost of the parts needed to manufacture this device and to create the prototype. Industrial design of product, I don't just need what it will look like. I need a realistic view, function and how best to design the product as if it was going to be manufactured. I'm honestly not sure of the requirements of this because there is a number of parts involved. Thank you and please ask if you have any questions!! This project will probably not start right away but I will look at what people say and the people who apply and select best candidate from there. Will probably be a 30 day long job to ensure quality and that everything is correct.

Hi, We have an interesting and very challenging Industrial Design/Product design project. We already have Health Kiosk deployed in few customer places, and now we are in the process of Aesthetic Design and look and feel. We have built and deployed different third party off the shelf health devices, and custom made Android tablet devices. Now in the process of enclosing then into single KIOSK with beautiful design and look and feel. If you are interested in taking the project further please Apply with: - Your previous Designs and Product portfolio - Referenaces - Your process and steps in building the KIOSK. - What are final Deliverables? - Do you have working relation with Factory to implement build prototypes, and support production and scale of the Design? etc... Thanks, Ramesh VP Applications and HW

Looking for someone who can design me a prototype of watch simillar to Midnight Planetarium... Please see photos below. I will provide my own idea and drawings. I need it to be done as cheap as possible with the cheapest materials available. I need all planets to be moving independently. Already have the actual design and will need professional to make a first prototype one of the pictures attached is the sample design. I will provide you with more info and design materials once chosen and NDA will be signed. Please also see the video on youtube... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjFuqVU2iK4 Let me know if this is something that you can make.
