Hi, Marcus,

I love this idea, and the video of the children playing speaks to the effectiveness of the prototype. I think my question is somewhat similar to Lynne's. I'm wondering about the way you're planning on scaling up the project to meet the overall goals. I see that you're working with Playground Ideas, but I'm having trouble visualizing your next steps for moving forward. Do you want to make this part of a toy line for a company? Create a company of your own? Distribute as needed (if so, how would you define the need)? I'm especially curious about how you hope to get Nudel Cart to areas impacted by disaster and conflict.

For me these questions are directly related to the OpenIDEO heading above "How does your idea leverage and empower community strengths and assets to help create an environment for success? (1,000 characters)".

Thanks for the inspiring idea!

Thanks for this interesting set of quotes from interviews. 

These remind me of concerns I had in the research phase. We need to be thinking of training people across generations.

Hi, Wingee,

Very interesting idea, thanks! What do you see as the main characteristics of the product?

Best wishes,
