The main differences between the initial prototype model and this one are:
- It has a hi-top that sits slightly proud of the bottles – this increases the capacity of the pod
- It has has ‘shoulders’ which mean that when the aid pod is pushed into the crate the bottles will part slightly and come back together and grip the pod once it is fully inserted. The shoulders also give the pod longitudinal strength
As before the benefits of using a universal pod are that:
- It allows the essential local determination of what is distributed and when. Needs will vary from location to location and from season to season and what is distributed MUST be determined locally by those with the long term responsibility for public health care;
- It potentially allows the idea to be replicated across the World after successful local trials;
- It also dis-associates the Coca-Cola product/brand with a particular ’social product’ which is likely to enable a wider range of products to be distributed.
I will be putting up a pattern so that you can make your own! And we will be building a 6-foot tall one for the press stunt on 17 March if we get through the last 100 in the Goggle’s Project 10 to the 100th competition.
