  • "I don't understand the safety and reaction concerns to this design.  It's basically the same wheel design that F1 drivers use and I'd say they have no problems with turning and reaction time.... Having your hands above the airbag leaves you open to more injury in an accident so it seems like a win-win. The yoke design is also less actual material so a touch more eco-friendly.... win-win-win..."

  • "Pretty much looks like every other 3-point camera strap on the market........Cool that it got funded but nothing new."

  • "How is this "tactical"?  It looks like a standard 3 side scale..... in dark metal....  "

  • "Another thought;  what does the retail store do with the other half of the box while the shoe is on display?  Once it's used as display the box seems to no longer function as a way to carry the shoe home now that it's ripped in half and has no lid.  Also the  built-in carrying handle seems to be thrown away once the box is used for display so that seems like a flaw in the design. "

  • "I'd like to see Core77 research these designs that they feature a bit more before posting them.   -This design claims to use less material than a standard shoe box but shows no data to back this up.  I can almost guarantee this 2-part design uses more material than a 1-piece box.  A 2-piece box likely uses MORE energy to make and assemble compared to the auto-assembled current box design.-This design claims to be smaller than a standard shoe box but again, zero data to back up this point.  Putting the shoes sole-to-sole will almost always take up MORE space in the box than a current shoe box where they are nested so I'm not sure how they think this is going to save space.....-A large hole in a shoe box will create a lot of dirt and dust issues so I'm not sure why that feature is included other than to see the color of the shoe inside?It would be great to see some data to back up any of the claims this design is making....   "

  • "The title seems misleading.  The "blended" material is a combination of recycled paper AND virgin bamboo fiber....  this material is not made from 100% recycled content. "

  • "Not sure I understand the point of this article...?  This is design news??  I already have several flat flashlights that work fine... this is nothing new.  Might help if you showcase other flashlights that also have this same "non-round" design......  Fenix isn't the only player in the game.."

  • "- I would truly hope that Core77 looks into the projects they support and doesn't just post anything they find on the internet... -Regarding the weight, I highly doubt there is a 429 billion ton difference in the amount that "enters international trade" and what is harvested...."

  • "Also I'd like to see where they got "430 billion tons of oysters are harvested each year" figure.....  The FAO website says annual production of oysters is about 5 million tons... that's a pretty big difference from 430 billion.  http://www.fao.org/in-action/globefish/market-reports/resource-detail/en/c/522564/Core77, do you research the projects you post or just let the public do the math and ask for proof?"

  • "There's no mention of cost anywhere in the project....  -In the video "Jade" says the best mix is 4 parts sand, 1 part shell mixture so that means these items are only 1/5 shell-based material.  The end results also appear to be incredibly porous in the video and would be terrible to eat or drink from or clean.... -I would also guess that "burning the shells for 2 hours" probably created more C02 than you took out by using shells as concrete filler.-I know the prototypes are rudimentary but I'm pretty sure you'll have to seal it with something before you eat cereal out of it...  This project looks to be more like: "we added some oyster shell chemical dust with concrete and made stuff".  "

  • "I can't imagine that many people have access to a $10,000 CNC machine and solid blocks of Aluminum to make an $18 piece of metal soap dish..... Also I would wager that the raw Aluminum block probably cost about $15 so I'm not sure how this is profitable..... machine run time cost, replacing cutting bits, finishing and polishing time....  "
