Scale Model of The Access
Originally used as a visual component of the award winning weight machine concept called The Access, this 1/5 scale model now serves as a communication tool for potential investors and award competitions, and for generally gathering interest in the initiative for this design concept. In addition to Gold and People’s Choice awards, in 2007 The Access won Best in Show at the annual IDEA event sponsored by the Industrial Designers Society of America and BusinessWeek magazine. A student at the University of Cincinnati at the time, Ryan Eder, envisioned The Access as an exercise machine that accommodates both wheelchair bound and fully mobile people. The above photos show the model that was built by PriorityPrototypes and displayed in the IDEA award winner’s product gallery. Careful thought and meticulous detail were critical components in creating The Access model. And as always, our prototyping team took great care to ensure the model represented the concept as envisioned.
The Access model continues to be used as a tangible, 360º-view communication tool. And as a result of interest generated by The Access, Ryan has launched a new company, IncludeFitness, and his dream of actually producing The Access is becoming very real.
Taylor Digital Measuring Cup
The Taylor Digital Measuring Cup and Scale distributed by Taylor Precision Products and designed by Priority Designs, is the functional combination of a digital scale and a measuring cup. An easy to read back lit LCD provides real time measurements taking the guesswork out of measuring. Simple Intuitive controls allow the user to navigate through dry as well as wet ingredients. It will also convert between the most common measurements including: milliliters, cups, fluid ounces, grams and pounds.
We wanted to thank everyone who came to our open house
We wanted to thank everyone who came to our open house and helped us celebrate our model shop renovation. The consumption of wings and beer was a good indicator of its' success (not too much left over!).
The event also kicked off the launch of our new prototyping web site at www.priorityprototypes.com. We are off to a good start and we appreciate your support.
Have a Happy New Year!

Priority Designs has been helping develop products for 18 years. As our industrial design business has grown so has our prototyping business. To better serve our clients needs for prototyping; we've enlarged our workable space and opened a web site dedicated to our prototyping business. The goal behind the renovation and website was to accommodate the increasing number of prototyping intensive projects coming our way. Our shop was renovated to streamline our process for quick turnarounds and our prototype finishing has been described as, "better then the manufactured product". We can make a quick sketch model or a working prototype. Our projects are as diverse as intricate medical devices and as large as the interior of an airplane. We have the tools and talent to make just about anything!
Our craft is creating prototypes and models, and our specialty is helping companies make their ideas work.
We want to build your ideas!
