What do you do?

Manufacture popular consumer laser technology

What is the product designed to do?

A portable laser light show. It has a 3 adjustable modes and a music-strobe feature where it works with background music. It has 2 lasers, red and green. The effect is a wicked cool galaxy starfield effect.

List the size and weight requirement(s) for your product design

135mm length, 75mm width, 35mm height
including base is the bare module minimum size, not including base.

We can either design a custom base, or use the current base found on the images of the blue rendered lightshow.

List all other important design requirements

Its a friggin' shark with laser beams! If you don't know what that is, let me explain:
Basically this is a shark with a lot of lasers, and its great for parties, clubs, discos! There are fins on the side required for ventilation.
The positioning of everything in the front needs to be roughly the same compared to the pictures attached. As you can see in the front its a beam aperture for the laser beams to come out and a microphone. Many things can be changed however, for example, we dont need to have the word MIC, and on the back, we can definitely work on cleaning things up. You are allowed to make small changes to the positioning of the knobs in the back as well as the labels there being redesigned.

Will this product need to be certified?

No, its already certified

What is your industry?

General consumers, all ages

What products will this new product compete with?

It will compete with all the other same function laser light show devices. Our advantage will be the Wicked Lasers brand which is well known for laser products.

It should look wicked, and that means something like the Wicked Lasers Arctic is a great design direction.

Please consider that we want to make this as close to the bare minimum size as possible. Also, we want this to be the best example of a shark laser product that has never yet been done before. We will be using plastic and we can use rubber, or metal inserts. You dont need to worry about the charger portion, we are using an OEM one, the charging port is on the side near the back panel.

The 2 devices in the photoX.jog images are: 1) the original bare module, and 2) a special customer OEM version of the bare module.
