Benefit of Solving the Problem
description of positive potential
  • No overuse by single individuals
  • Tools are available to use without delay
Known Barriers
those things which would prevent success of a future solution
  • Such things as paper and ink for printers, filament for 3d printers, and cutting tools for wood and metal working equipment.
  • How do we manage consumable items to ensure that they are available? How do we fund them?
  • Tools vary from brand to brand, as we develop solutions, the technologies will change, possible rendering the solution useless
Potential Collaborators
list of those interested in helping to solve this problem
  • Who can manufacture solutions?
  • Who has ideas that don’t require manufacturing?
  • Ask device manufacturers to build consideration into new products
  • Specifically? - Amanda Ervin at Union College is testing out some strategies now.
  • Who else? - We should coordinate, not test the same solutions, might help get to answers faster.
  • Sean Auriti
