Oasis is a child heatstroke prevention device that I received a patent for this April. If a child is left in a hot car, the device uses a fan system to cool the child and the car. While that happens, the device sends an alert to the parents and alerts authorities if the parents don’t react. You can hear more about Oasis, my ideas, and my plans in my Tedx Talk here .
Now that the Oasis has been fully dreamed up, it’s time to bring the final product to life. So far all the prototypes of my device have been handmade in my garage, but I’m ready for the next steps. The ultimate goal of this phase is to have a functional prototype to help with getting Oasis manufactured.
I’ve been working with Kickr Design , a company that helps inventors build their products and connects them with manufacturers to bring products to market. This process is very expensive but very important. Kickr and I have come up with a plan for the amount of time each next step will take:
• Project Planning: 8-10 hours
• Brainstorming and Ideation: 5-7 hours
• Mechanical Design: 12-14 hours
• Electrical Design: 15-18 hours
• Testing: 32-38 hours
• Software Programming: 68-72 hours
• Design Reviews: 10-12 hours
• Assembly and Adjustment: TBD
The time it takes for these next steps is dependent upon funding because the company that will be helping is paid by the hour. This is where you come in. Your donations will go directly towards the creation of Oasis. You can help play a role in saving a child’s life.
I appreciate your thoughts, prayers, or donations to help me with this next phase of my mission to end child hot car deaths. My ultimate goal is to get these manufactured and put in stores and save at least one life. If I can save more, that would be great!
Money raised on my campaign will be withdrawn by my mother, Tenia Curry, who is helping manage the finances regarding Oasis.
