Robert commented on EcoTrak Bag

Hi Alan Somerfield ,
Nice crossover idea from fitness to eco-tracking!
I would hope that the recognition would suffice as motivation. I guess there’s nothing stopping the store from adding additional incentives or monetary rewards if they wanted to, although they might need to add more security and logic (ex: two visits maximum per day, or such).

Hopefully the eco-trak tags could work across multiple types of stores (grocery, hardware, etc.)

Good luck! -Robert

Robert commented on Safe Shared Space

Hi Isaac Jumba ,

Nice to hear from you, I hope you and yours are all well!

I believe that we will likely be dealing with this pandemic, and people's concerns around it, for several months if not years. With that kind of future ahead of us, I am anxious to contribute to solutions that will allow people to gather together and collaborate over that time period, at least in small numbers, with little fear of spreading or catching contagions.

These kind of Safe Shared Space systems can be envisioned as both original equipment and as retrofit installations. As original equipment, the bulk of the system (air handlers, ducting, and conditioners) could be built into walls, attic space, and space dividers. Stand-alone retrofit systems will likely need aesthetic/protective enclosures.

Thanks for the comment! -Bob
