What type of projects do you like to work on?

My current goal is to invent a new mobility device for people who have trouble getting around because their feet hurt easily. (I'm one of them). I have a design in my mind... and I hope that hanging around with you guys and learning more than I know know will help me make my invention a reality. <P> I also have an electronic device in my imagination which would help speech therapy patients improve their voice modulation. I also envision a communication gizmo which would help people with "locked in syndrome" (a.k.a. nearly 100% paralyzed) better communicate with the world. <P> I want to learn as much as I can about how 3-D printers are designed. :) <P> I have a talent for observing how a gizmo or process is currently designed and being able to see how to make it faster, more innovative, more practical, more inexpensive, etc. I hope this innate ability can contribute something positive to people in this group.

What skillset would you like to learn?

How can I choose just one skillset? It's all like trying to choose from different kinds of delicious chocolate! :) :) :)

Introduction

Hi, I'm a sort of female Macgyver who loves to work with tools, invent things. I used to work with graphics and teach Photoshop. If I could change reality, I'd go back in time and follow my original dream of proudly becoming a mechanical engineer.
