clarinet reed cases don’t work, it’s time for a change
What is a reed
anatomy of a clarinet
The mouthpiece Interacts directly with the player. Sound is formed here. The reed rests on the mouthpiece
The cane plants that create reeds are harvested and cut
Three reeds are created per cylinder. the reeds are filed down to almost paper thin at the end
The reed structure is made of xylem cells, which contract and expand with moisture input
why is a reed important
The reed sits flush on the mouthpiece face and vibrates when played
If the reed warps even slightly, it wonâ€™t be able to sit properly on the mouthpiece. this inhibits tone and response.
When the mouthpiece and reed interact properly, music can be made.

BENCHMARKING&IDEATION why do reeds warp
A poor surface storage can cause the reeds to warp while drying.
The humidity, and rate of change of humidity within the reeds can cause the xylem cells to warp.
Playing reeds too often can cause warpage.
current market evaluation
surface quality Daniel Orbach | 5
FEATURES&BENEFITS Double sided design holds reeds on either side of the glass Memory foam strip to keep reeds in place
Dual hygrometers show humidity on either side of the case
Humidipak integration Holds over 10 reeds per side
O-ring for a perfect humidity seal
Use of glass allows for reeds to be stored on both sides.
Daniel Orbach | 6
The caseâ€™s unique construction allows for two modules that are mirrors of one another to sandwich together over the glass, creating environments that can me individually humidity controlled, so that you can keep reed that are being broken in separate from reeds that are being played regularly

laying bricks should be more comfortable
Additional Research Spade is too long fo r the handle
Potential Stress point during prolonged use.
Ability of little finger to wrap around handle.
Ulnar deviation is key.
Found a study with ten subjects, three different trowels and fifteen different motions. This is the result of the study:
Handle grip did not allow for turning of the trowel without slipping
Needing to push downward with the trowel to mix using finger muscles to grip. Fingers extend beyond handle Butt of handle digs into flesh Micro muscles for macro movements
Handle is too small for the hand, causing the fingers to wrap around the handle and become too stressed
Subjects reported less forearm fatigue with a handle angle of 19 degrees
Subjects did not prefer a circular handle profile, opting instead for a slightly oblong design Daniel Orbach | 10

Tail flare helps keep hand from slipping A more aesthetically pleasing curvature
more balanced handle to spade proportion
longer design allows the user to choke up on the handle
Taller profile engages the correct muscles

Its time Ultimate Frisbee got its own shoe
“It hurts when someone lands on my foot”
What is Ultimate Frisbee?
Endzones and a field over 100 yards long are reminiscent of a football field.
The Sport is Growing: Paid Memberships To The UPA
A pivot foot, fouls, and a need for jumping ability are what basketball brings to the table
Fluid player movement, passing and game rhythm are similar to soccer
Measuring the Forces on Different Cleats While Turning
Oval Shaped Cleats Are
safer Than circular ones Outer turn 0
It’s apparent some cleats matter more than others
Daniel Orbach | 14
A shoe needs to protect its wearer from getting stomped on, much like a turtle shell.
The ciruclar shape of a frisbee could be an interesting design element
Design Requirements youthful styling high performance gear high percieved value something unique brand ethos highly visible
according to the world global style network, brightyl colored sportswear is in trend, with brands like adicolor leading the charge

Soldering is a complete mess, it shouldnâ€™t have to be this way.
black box some u/i cheap stand for price temperature control
cheap sponge separate stand no u/i iron is attatched
cohesive form gigantic detatchable iron cheap sponge to clean
$ cheap sponge no third hand flimsy iron stand lack of tether on cord
Iron is held directly above unit, making it unstable.
Not enough hands to perform a simple soldering operation.
longer cord cohesive form separate stand outdated u/i
A cheap sponge doesnâ€™t always clean everything off, and when it does it ruins the sponge.
multiple irons massive box lots of controls carrying handle
Iron tinning becomes a necessity when the temperature of the system isnâ€™t properly maintained.
Flimsy board casings rattle around during soldering, which only complicated what is already way too much.

Hi, I’m Dave. I have a steady job, so I need to use this everyday
white collar work
Can it look better than the black boxes out now?
snazzy tie I know how to solder. if this isn’t good I’ll know
Something durable and long lasting would be nice
do-it-yourselfer What about one station for home and work?
plays guitar and modifies RC cars in his spare time

a portable, flip style station
a less portable station, holder separate from electric unit
a boxier electronic unit, with wire wraps around the bottom Daniel Orbach | 22
FEATURESBENIFETS hinging top
LCD u/i telescoping iron holder with closed loop control
roatary push dial control
folding cable holders
more ergonomic iron with a heat resistant grip pad
cables clip onto boards
magnetized power outlet
sponge/brass shavings holder
Heatsync has internals bossed to it so vents are not needed. it also takes in the heat from the cables
Daniel Orbach | 23
Station is the only current design with a flip top system. This allows for maximum portability without sacrificing quality.
A sleeker, more ergonomic, redesigned Iron features a unique mag-safe power outlet as well as a heat resistant yellow overmold.
Alligator clips attatched to 10 gauge wire can support a board or act as a heatsync to relieve heat distribution
The telescoping Iron holder has registration to ensure the iron wonâ€™t wiggle around. It also features closed loop control for maxiumum temparature stability
Portability is further enhanced with retainer clips for the electrical cable, so it can be wrapped up while being stored or moved
