Experience Level: Intermediate
Thank you for taking your time to hear me out,
I am a 21 year old college student. Urban and Regional Planning major with a focus on Community Development and minors in Sociology and Sustainability Studies. I'm currently finishing school while working for a major social media app. I've witnessed the current and developing themes associated with the pace the future is heading, and i've studied the issues of massive environmental ecosystem devastation going on today.
I want to impact the world in a positive way. Before I leave, I want to see a greener world than I entered. In a literal sense. I came up with the idea of a walking/hiking stick, that with a simple downward pump action with push a seed into penetrated earth through a sharp point that will have entered soft earth. The seeds could be of either a select range of diameters (this is the prefered option) that fits within an operational diameter, an interchangeable tip system could be integrated, or seeds could be packaged in a nutrient barrier BB sized pellet of sorts for uniformity in size (going to require a BBoligist, I'll find one)... these details do not matter now though. I need a functioning prototype first. With this device countries in africa who have over-harvested wood as a resource can plant seeds with each or every other step. Additional benefits go to older people or those who may not be ale to bend down to plant their own seeds/garden. I've got a set list of immediate, short, and long term goals I will accomplish that include getting a patent (perhaps you had some advice on that process). I'm not in this for the money. I'd love to work out some sort of benefit for ya'll in stock once I get this off the ground. I am reaching out to multiple groups for the best prototype I can get. As simple, efficient, and cost effective as possible. Reviews say that I stumbled on the right place.
Attached are some incredibly basic sketched hand drawn designs. I apologize for the poor contrast and visibility.
I need a digital copy of something in 3D, on solidworks or similar system, if making it first on autocad is required than do that too. Then I need that made into a tangible object and put in my hands. If that includes using a mechanical and materials engineer.. just go for it. Whatever it takes. As well as, any and all advice and wisdom you have for me. I love to learn from wiser and different perspectives.
