FEATURED STORY

New Project: A Wardrobe Makeover for Mountaineers: The Mark I Saviour

There’s one thing I’d never want to do, and that’s climb Mount Everest. I know that a lot of people would disagree with me because climbing Mount Everest is at the top of many (nutty) peoples’ bucket lists. So, for those people, the Collaborizm project I’m about to introduce will be very helpful!
The project I am referring to is called The Mark I-Saviour, a suit designed specifically for mountaineers. Now you may ask, aren’t there already suits for mountaineers?

And I, someone completely unfamiliar would say, yes I don’t know why they need another one! But what I and many other people don’t know is that current mountaineering suits are pretty incapable of withstanding the weather conditions presented while climbing, especially while climbing to the summit of Mount Everest. In addition, many suits do not even have tracking technology that would enable rescue teams to easily find a trapped climber.

In fact, the top of Mount Everest is actually called the death zone — pleasant right? What is most interesting however, is that most climbers die descending “the death zone”. During the descent, climbers are more tired, less coordinated, and perhaps less focused relative to when ascending the mountain. In addition, the lack of oxygen due to the high altitudes, severe weather conditions, and extreme temperatures makes “the death zone” more dangerous to descend than lower altitude points.

These tragic statistics inspired Top Innovator, Jitto Varghese, to create the Mark I-Saviour, a suit designed to better handle the rough conditions confronted while mountaineering, such as an avalanche.

The Mark I-Saviour

Jitto and his team brainstormed the most critical aspects to improve the efficiency of the mountaineering suit and came up with the design above that should include the aspects listed below:

Funding

Due to Jitto’s organization, passion, and dedication to this project, the Collaborizm Innovator Fund, which has raised over $11,000, selected to sponsor The Mark I-Saviour project!
While I may not be planning to climb Mount Everest anytime soon, the Mark I-Saviour will certainly be an incredible product to those who decided to take on that adventure.
Keep on climbing! (Make sure you wear the Mark I-Saviour though ;))

Thanks toAli Stone,Steven Reubenstone and John Rodrigues
for your support and motivation.

Collaborizm is the perfect world for innovators and fresh engineers like me, Thanks again for building this community,
And I am happy to say that we are on the edge of building the first prototype (only thermal management). And we are doing research on Crevice Detection Unit.
