Our goal for this polymer project is to prevent people from making their hands cold when they open their door in winter without doorknobs, at first we only had a main goal, which was to improve furniture, but we focused on improving the doors. We noticed that often the metal door handles turns cold and effects people who does not like the cold. I think the main audience for this project is people that do not cold hands and does not approve of gloves, and also parents that do not like their child having cold hands. We also had a goal which was to make a door guard, this goal is mainly targeting families with children so that when small children are sleeping, you can still slam a door shut and the sound would not wake the child up. Our polymer would prevent people from having these
problems. I think the perfect solution for the polymer would be Stretch-tastic due to it’s ability to stick together and not fall apart easily, but it is way too sticky. Door handles obviously cannot stick to people’s hands when they open the door, and when closing the door, the slime would stick on the door and it would be really hard to open the door again, so the perfect solution is adding another layer of Gloop, which does not stick and would also make the material really soft and comfortable.
