  1. Hey Olivia,
    Great Blog Post! I think the Pinterest idea would be awesome. I know that both of my grandmas love to cook, and besides learning new recipes and cooking styles, I’m sure they would love to teach others about how to make their recipes as well. It’s definitely a nice idea that could keep the elderly busy and engaged in the community. The limitless solutions article is really cool, and I think that what they’re doing is awesome. Hopefully this is just the beginning for them, and they continue to come up with ideas that could greatly help out the world. I’m also a big fan of Shark Tank, and seeing some of the ideas on the show make me believe inspiration for the next big thing can come from anywhere.

  2. Hi Olivia,
    I enjoyed reading your post, especially in the part of Limitless Solutions. It reminds me of the presentation in our first week of class delivered by Arielle Rausin about the printed gloves for wheelchair racers. Both of these two projects demonstrated the successful outcome from design thinking (maybe). One major concern of 3D printed prosthetic device that I can think of, after comparing with the gloves, is that prosthetic device might need to be more resistant to wear before it can be popularized. I do believe that the engineers are working on it and probably overcome the restrictions in commercial 3D printing material in short future.

  3. Hi Olivia,
    I really enjoyed reading your blog post! When I was listening to your groups idea of creating a Pinterest style app for the elderly I instinctively thought of my own grandma who would have loved to see recipes created by others as she loves to learn how to cook different styled meals. The two external articles you had were very relevant and interesting. Limitless Solutions is such an innovative organization, they seemed to have found the exact problems that their consumer, children, have. Every child grows at different rates which makes this 3D print prosthetic device incredibly innovative. Personally, I love watching Shark Tank and seeing all the unique designs brought on by the contestants, and your point on being able to receive feedback is such a great opportunity to grow creativity.
