LoneAlarm wants YOU to design the next generation of smart walking stick! We're searching for designs that can improve the quality of life for people who require a walking aid.
Our cutting-edge technology is embedded in the handle of the walking stick to collect data that can enhance the user's care. We're looking for designs that are not only functional but also stylish and desirable, making our smart walking stick an accessory that users can be proud to own.
The ideal design should be ergonomic, lightweight, height-adjustable for people between 146cm and 193cm tall, and able to support up to 130kg. It should be easy and intuitive to assemble single-handedly by individuals with physical and/or cognitive impairments and easy to pack and unpack, allowing it to be shipped by post in Australia, Canada, US, and UK.
We want a design that is easy to manufacture and suitable for drop-shipping from distribution warehouses directly to end customers. The product and packaging should be fully recyclable, and the handle should be made of RF transparent plastic, incorporating space for LoneAlarm's electronics and an upward-facing clear window (10mm x 10mm) for the pulse oximetry sensor.
Your entry should include 3D sketches of the walking stick and drop-ship packaging and a narrative showing how the design meets the required product attributes.
We're offering a cash prize of $AU300 for what we and our focus group think is the best design. The successful entrant will work with LoneAlarm to incorporate our technology into the design and produce Minimum Viable Product prototypes of the smart walking stick.
Join us in our mission to create a revolutionary smart walking stick that will change lives!
