The Product Design engineering students at Carnegie Mellon have been busy working on a couple of very, very neat concepts for this project and … you are welcome to hear all about them at their presentation this coming Tuesday! Seriously, if you are near Pittsburgh and can make it to Shaip Hall on the Carnegie Mellon University campus, let me know! Their work discussions need to remain in the classroom for now, but suffice it to say that i am very psyched and proud of their thoughtful problem solving thus far.
The Paddlesports Industry Foundation, a non-profit organization, has adopted TLKP. What does this mean? Well, for one, your ‘gift’ to the project is now tax deductible and if you have sent $ via PayPal or a check, you’ll receive a thank you and confirmation by the end of the year from PIF.
This week’s presentation will show us their prototyping plans and models developed thus far, with initial conclusions and reactions from their team about the efficacy of the design and some reaction from industry members they have interviewed. Wish I could show you what they are planning, but they’d have to kill me.
