Here's the deal. I'm an Industrial Design major set to graduate in June. Basically my last quarter of school is devoted to a thesis project which is traditionally the biggest focus of your portfolio. (for those who don't know, ID is basically product design. We go into fields like electronics, car design, consumer products, basically any product thats on a shelf. We decide how it works, what it looks like, materials, construction, etc.) So the thesis is something of your choice, and while I have some ideas I want to work on something that I personally have a vested interest in. My main hobbies are guitar and Muay Thai. And while I don't train JJ or MMA, I am still very interested in them as a spectator. Anyway, I would love to create a new and innovative product that would benefit people training in striking arts, grappling, or even MMA but I really have no ideas at the moment. I feel like bags, focus mitts, thai pads, gloves, etc. have existed for so long that innovating them would be a very weak area. Then again, I haven't been training nearly as long as most of you, so I'm asking for any thoughts or suggestions that you may have had through your training career. A product you wish was marginally better, something new, anything at all. This could be incredibly vague like 'I wish there was a way I could train at home without a partner' or something specific like 'There needs to be a way to keep my gloves/gi/etc. clean and last longer'. I think this would be an interesting discussion and a break from the bs around the Cage, but if nobody has ideas I'll just assume that the field of combat sports products just isn't the best way to go. Thanks guys.
