The many limousines were a hit they were really well designed by all of the students and we had great success with all the limos.
We managed to make six of these many limousines at the end of it however only three of them were completed well enough to use. We sold them in the community raising money for charity with them.
They were, unfortunately, not road legal, however, so we are unsure as to where they ended now. After the success of the mini limos, we have now started on our next innovation of the old trusty vacuum cleaner.
This innovation idea came after the vast amounts of mess that we made building the vehicles. With the shear amount of rubbish mess we created, we struggled to clean the workshop up on a consistent basis. Hence, the idea came about.
For the innovation, we figured if we had an easier way of cleaning up the mess it would save a lot of time and allow us to focus greater efforts on the innovating projects and less on cleaning. This is where we decided that we would recreate the vacuum cleaner.
It wasn't going to be nay vacuum cleaner though; it was going to have a greater area of suction and a lot more power for a better clean. We are planning on using the body of a blower vac system for the great suction power that we will modify to increase its power output.
In order to power it and make it easy to use, a battery pack will be attached to the back of it making it portable and more efficient to use. We then plan to use a larger industrial size hose, as by using a larger hose, means we will be able to suck up bigger pieces of rubbish that would have not been able to fit in a standard house vacuum cleaner house.
Connected to the front we plan to use a modified professional carpet cleaner’s vacuum cleaner head that we will make larger in all dimensions. It will be connected to the front of the hose and have a pole attached to it simply allow greater control of the system.
We are still currently working on this project and it is very much in the design phase. Following the design though we will pursue onto trial and error in order to innovate the greatest vacuum cleaner there is. As we progress we feel that once they are completed and ready for action they will make for great cleaners for both outdoors and indoors, including your outdoor living areas, your workshop and even inside on your floors, carpets, tiles, floor boards etc with a great portable, powerful, practical clean.
With a bit of luck they will be a huge success and we could model them off to cleaner companies and households, make some profits and put them back into the community for ourselves to develop some more innovative products.
Our latest innovation that we have worked on developing are small scale limousines.
The small scale limousines are essentially about the size of a stretch mini cooper. We have developed this innovation of the mini limo as we call it after being inspired by the innovative features that a limousine presents in terms of transportation.
We intend to innovate a small scale model that essentially provides the essence of ‘stretch’ whilst remaining a fairly practical vehicle size.
We have based the limo off a smart car. With the smart car we have planned to generate a 3 smart car length limousine. This in theory will produce a limo that is shorter in height, less wide and not as long.
Essentially they will be an ideal transport choice (if they were to ever be road worthy) for up to 5 people. So rather than all being squished into the back set together with a full car you can have more room to move in a somewhat stylish little mini limo.
Just like the big boys toys we plan to innovate our limos with all the latest external and internal features. From chrome wheels, to body kits, to metallic paint work, led screens, refreshment bar, lighting, sound system, leather seating and the works, from neon to tint, to sunroofs to Lamborghini doors.
We will definitely not hold back with what we produce, we intend to make the thing shine, light up and satisfy everyone who uses them.
If all goes through and we with the help of the young students can produce a number of these limos we hope to have a small fleet of them on the streets in no time at all. Hopefully we may be able to partner up with existing companies and possible sell our fort Collin innovation limos to them to use.
The project begins at the end of the year once we have finished all of the design stages. Keep posted ad we will update you shortly with the attest news and innovative ideas we will come up with for this mini-limo project.
Fort Collins Innovation
Hi everyone, Fort Collins innovation we like to discuss our latest innovation projects we are working on with yout members on small scale projects.
Fort Collins innovation was founded earlier this year (2014) by a group of young community members aged under 16 looking to re develop existing innovative designs/products and services that are currently existing.
