Polymer project Journal #2

The goal of our polymer project is to try to help people lessen their pain when riding bikes. Especially when their hands start hurting after holding on the grip too long. Our first target market audience would be teens. The reason is because they have the most chance of using a bike. For example, riding their bike to school every day.¬†Our polymer would help them majorly because it could save them from pain in their hands every day.¬†Another possible target market audience would be travelers as in biking around the country. This could help them because the polymer could avoid the painful contact that the biker and the handles are touching during the bike ride. Why we liked Gloop was because first of all, it was bouncy and also rubbery, this can reduce the friction that the biker and the handles have during the bike ride. Some characteristics I like about Super Slime was that it was jelly-like, so it was able to mold into any shapes, it was also not sticky, and was very squishable. Some traits like about Stretch-Tastic Slime was that it was super stretchy, but there was a lot of negative characteristics that I dislike about it. For example, it was EXTREMELY sticky, which would not be the best suitable polymer to be used. Some characteristics I like about Oobleck is that if not added pressure, then it will turn into liquid, it is also moldable, but the negative side about it is that it doesn’t hold it’s form.
