  • "The democratization of design is a good thing. More people having access to more/better tools to bring their ideas to life.  I think more rigorous design is definitely still out there in fields that require it ( medical, construction, architecture, ect) . If you're having a hard time competing with the expanded (so called flooded) market place of designers then maybe you aren't bringing more value to the table than them."

  • "for this application lighter is better. with exertion and adrenaline , that 12 pound pull can cause ones hands to shake from squeezing while in a heightened state. making it less accurate and therefore potentially deadly to bystanders.competition shooters, hunters, and marksmen all use lighter triggers to improve accuracy. in a situation where an officer is having to use their firearm you want more accuracy  not less. we also want less situations where police use their firearms. but that's outside of this discussion"

  • "at first glace i like it, i would want to use it for the novelty . But this problem could be solved by asking a barista to stir or mix. additionally this thing would create a second line at the stir station, has great potential for mess(see user error). "

  • "In the context of a bike sharing program I think it does change the equation. I was thinking about it from a commuter/ fitness context of someone owning a bike.   Requiring helmets by law isn't necessary. If someone wants to take that risk I think they should be free to do so. But as a point of safety and common sense I think helmets should be encouraged. Perhaps bike share programs could provide helmets. although there would be challenges with Fit and hygiene of the helmet. "

  • "If someone is too lazy to not put on a helmet because of the inconvenience then they probably weren't going to take up cycling to begin with.  I think the main barrier to cycling is infrastructure especially in the US.  I ride only trails and paths  only using the bike lane when it is especially wide and well taken care of. "
