  • "It looks as though the clutch and brake lever would actually hit the fairing, let alone leave clearance for your fingers to operate them. I've seen plenty of dustbin fairing bikes out there, so the concept isn't new. Something looks off with this one though; agreed on both the high and low speed turning issues brought up. "

  • "Does preventing excess flood water to escape the system have adverse consequences? -Where does that excess water and pressure go if it can't exit the storm drain... plumbing fixtures upstream of the sewer perhaps? I'd rather have that water escape at the storm drain than from fixtures in my house... The floating ball concept is good and prevention of mosquito breeding is definitely a plus. I think that the gradient perforation pattern of the storm drain is nicely resolved. "

  • "One possible flaw I saw in the video was the gap at the bottom of the swinging door catching the cat's tail on the way in. As the door swings back down shut, the cat's tail is still in the opening, and the bottom of the door/top of the front wall look like they would pinch the cat's tail. Perhaps a shorter soft section along the bottom of the door would resolve the issue and still keep the enclusure relatively sealed up when not in use. Some of the other integrated features look pretty well considered. "

  • "https://youtu.be/6N9uy5ClB5MI'd wager they work the same as a slap bracelet. Thin spring steel inside with a concave shape along its length. When the concave shape is engaged, they are locked straight. When the concave is overcome they snap back to a rolled shape. A broken tape measure will do the trick for DIY versions. I bet you could add small grab loops at the end of each length of spring steel to be able to re-flatten the whole thing from the outside without having to put your fingers into the S**t covered inside surface.   "

  • "Agreed on the size/aid for the visually impaired. These are gorgeous, but one piece of the graphic design I'd like to see better considered is the orientation and placement of the numerical denomination according to how the bills are most typically stored/used. A wallet being the foremost, with the upper (side in this case) edge peeking out. A numeral at the upper corner of each bill as exposed in a wallet is extremely helpful in quickly reviewing a stack of bills without having to pull them out of the wallet. Next I'd say is folded into quarters length-wise, as many do now with card holders and minimal wallets. Perhaps there is a position a quarter of the way or so down the bill that would allow easy review of a stack of bills folded in this way."
