Hello,
I am currently working on a project for 'Hard Materials Product Design'. As part of the research component, I need to be able to consult with 'stakeholders' from my target market to help design my product around their needs.

The design: So far my design idea consists of a computer desk thats integrates a lot of the human interface connections and minimises messy cables. It has built in multi-plug mains adaptors with switching to allow you to easily turn devices such as printers and monitors off individually to save power. A built in usb hub and audio jacks with internal cabling and potentially a built in bluetooth dongle. A light to illuminate the keyboard in the dark. The finer points will be decided by you.

Who do I need? I am lookin for four or so people who fall between 18-40 years old who use lots of or some peripherals (webcams etc.) to consult throughtout the year with my ideas and designs and to give input from my target market (you). Unfortunately I can't pay you and those who choose to participate should do it out of interests sake. Depending on how the project goes, if you are willing to pay the cost price of materials, I may be able to make you a custom version of the final product as payment.

To show your interest, please reply to this thread or PM me.

Cheers,
David Browne
