Terrazign Inc. is an industry recognized leader in the design of soft goods.
Zippable Plywood Trade Show Booths
One of the first slides demonstrated a trade show booth for a snowboarding company. He was able to integrate zippers into the polished plywood panels to allow the tradeshow display to be zipped together into a study shape and unzipped into an easily transportable shape once the trade show ended.
“This is the only time I’ve ever gotten splinters from sewing”, he added with a smile.
All Weather Segway Enclosures
He showed off other industrial objects from his firm, including an all-weather enclosure for Segways that made the little personal vehicles look even more ridiculous——>in a good way. Here’s a link to an article (and photos) of the invention on Engadget called Meep Meep.
Backpacks and Military Projects
The next series of slides ranged from inflatable car seats for toddlers (saving time, space, and weight), and Compression backpacks, which do pretty much the same thing while looking awesome at the same time.
He outlined some of the military projects the firm has worked on as well, including a backpack with a hydration frame that made water the structure of the pack.
“This solved the largest issue of military life, which is hydration”. Placing hydration at the center of the bag allowed the soldier the capability to modify what they needed, because the backpack was also modular.
Sparq Training Equipment
Terrazign created a series of collapsible hurdles for Sparq, a training division of Nike. They’re lightweight and foldable, and can withstand and structure serious training.
They also developed weight vests, which were made from monofilament fiber mesh that allows for air flow.
