Concept Development

The first step we took in developing ideas was creating/populating a morphological table. This is shown below.

After that we created three different concepts from the table that we thought best suited our project.

Concept I: Roller In Handle

Concept II: Actuated Buttons In Handle

This concept is implemented by having one or several "button" like objects oscillating into the hand when the sensors detect an object.

Concept III: Wrist Bands

This concept is taken off the handle and puts the feedback in bracelets that the user would wear. It includes two vibrational feedback and blue tooth in each wrist band.
