The overall feedback from the review was good last night.
Most of the critics had comments about the form of my prototype as well as the life-span of the filter. Some mentioned that perhaps using a lighter color material would help send a message or make a statement since over time as the filter on the mask is used, there would be a dark spot that develops which would show how bad the atmosphere is that they're breathing in. Also, to add to the idea of making a statement, perhaps adding a bright color on the shoulders or an accent color in some other way to sort of create a uniform.
There were also suggestions on the glove aspect of my product. One critic suggested considering the rubbers that are heat-shrunk over electrical wire and possibly using that idea in the gloves so they would be more form fitting for tactile ability.
Also consideration of the life-span of the filter used in the mask. How the user would be able to know when to change it, etc.
Comments on the distribution of my product as well as creating an awareness were made; some one mentioned using a system similar to those of breast cancer donations that you find at Target and other stores when they ask if you'd like to make a contribution. But in the case of my product, perhaps they could receive something for the contribution that would let them know about the situation happening in Guiyu; ie: the photos of destroyed lungs that sometimes come with packs of cigarettes.
Overall, I have some more consideration to do on the final form as well as the distribution of my product. I have a phone conversation scheduled with my NFP this week. Depending on how far we get into it, I plan on discussing distribution and possible manufacturing with them to see if they would be interested or have any ideas.
