Thank you for sharing your idea here.
We have a special Office Hours session coming up to interact with our Innovation Coaches and be part of a QnA.

A story of two halves. Defining your problem and telling your solutions story. –with Alan Bryant, Senior strategist at Livity
DATE & TIME: Friday 28th June, 2019 10am PST
We'll start by workshopping how to clearly define and articulate the problem you are solving, then look at how to get to the root cause and the impact this has on your idea. Before we move on to talk about narrative structures and how to tell your ideas story in the most clear and engaging way for your audience.

Hi Murphy,

Thanks for submitting your idea, I'm Alan, one of the innovation coaches here at Open Ideo.

I have a few questions that will hopefully be useful to bring your idea to life more. Would be great to discuss the below with you.

> With protection devices already existing, what challenges do you see with these that your idea is solving?

> What more do you know about your audience beyond their age? Do you have behavioural insights, information that paints more of a picture of who they are and what their needs are?

> How are your protectors overcoming the challenges that you see in the current market? You mention high tech, high density, soft materials - do you have any more information on this? This will help bring your innovation to life.

Hopefully, by answering some of these questions it will give a clearer picture of your idea and the challenges that it is overcoming for your audience.
