SLIDE ARM - Gun shaped controller for presentation


SLIDE ARM - Gun shaped controller for presentation

What's this Challenge about?

Hi, I am a chief of R&D Div. #144.
I’ve decided to challenge crowd funding in order to get my boss supervisor back!

At first, let me talk about the background. I wanted to make a device which can encourage people who challenge presentation in case of severe circumstances.

I’m not good at making a presentation indeed. I don’t like feeling pressure just before my turn. Originally, I must talk about my project fluently and confidently, in front of many difficult judges. But the more I aware it, the more serious my face grow. I have wanted a device which can help me to switch my mind to positive, in that situation.

However, it must not cause misoperation. Although some presentation controllers are available to the market already, they have lots of buttons on their small housing. On the contrary, what I want is simple and easy to use. Therefore, it should have only two buttons to move to next page and previous one.

I‘ve made the one which can work in action.
Get ready to pitch!!
