Improve 4 Pack Flat Case Design -- No Mold Constraint.

#R&DChallenge

Dates: June 26th, 2017 - August 15th, 2017

This contest will focus on improving the existing design for the Tabs2Go case for glucose tablets. This contest specifically focuses on designs that are completely new (are not constrained by existing mold).

##Product Requirements
-fits 4 glucose tablets - dimensions for tablets are roughly 1 inch in diameter and .33 inches in height. More specifics to come shortly re exact dimensions
-the case is flat. By flat I mean less than .5 inches in height
-We want the case to be super easy to open/close. That is biggest design issue with current design
-the case will be made out of poly propylene when it is completed. It will be made in a mold

  • Describe how it improves on existing design

That’s it! Excited to see what the community generates. :)

Hi All, I’m open to any idea you have as long as it fits the above requirements. Think about it this way, you need to carry 4 tablets with you at all time. How would you like to carry them? And we want this to be a cool stylish thing, not some medical looking device.

After reviewing your prototype and your request for improvements I came out with below:
1- Two small pads were added to the lower body on the right and left side so that it will be effortless to decide which side is top or the bottom and it will be easy to grip the case.
2- I added a snap hook to the case to make it more secure against water or any undesired liquids and to protect the tabs , but it will not be hard to open because of the above configration.
3- I also suggest to use transparrent material to show how may tabs are left in the case.
please find the attached conspet of the case which was build using solidworks.

I came up with an unique idea of having fidget spinner as a box.
Something everyone will love to keep in pocket and now it also has some utilization.
It is as following…

can hold up-to 5-6 tablets.
Provides easy opening and closing.

let me know what you think
