2017 Earphone holder and case project
I would like to do this project because this is something that I think I could benefit from because it would prevent my headphones from tangling like they usually do. It takes a considerable amount of time to untangle my headphones when I take them out of my bookbag, but with an earphone holder that is portable, I won’t have that problem. Also, since I would put adhesive on the back to make it stick to the back of my phone, I could simply unwrap my headphones from the back of my phone whenever i need to instead of having to fish for them in my bookbag. I use my headphones a lot, so this would be very useful to me.
Today I worked on my design for my portable earphone holder. I based it off of the project I found on the instructables website. I measured my earphones to see how big the compartment would have to be wear the earbuds would go. Now all I really need to do is double check my measurements and then I can print out my project.
Today I didn’t really work on my project, but I got to go to the wood shop and learn about how all of the different tools there work in case I ever need to use them. I also got to show some of the people from the ISEEN conference the work I did last semester on my clock as well as the earphone holder project I am working on now. It was nice to see that people were genuinely interested in what I’m doing and helped boost my confidence a little in my engineering abilities since this is my first time taking a class like this.
Today, I made printed out a revised prototype of my earphone holder. This one works very well. The ear buds fit in the holes, and the wire has enough room to wrap around. For my next(hopefully final) prototype, the only change I want to make is making the edges round and maybe shortening the earphone holder part a bit.
This is my final version of my earphone holder. The corners have been round more evenly and is a little smaller because of that. I ‘m going to start working on a case for it.
This is a prototype of my case for my earphone holder. Unfortunately for some reason the print did not finish so they case does not fit right. However, I did find out that if the print had finished my case would have fit.
