To succeed in life is a goal of people everywhere. In order to do so, being punctual is very important. Making it on time to events is a result of good time management, and more importantly, an effective reminder alarm, internal or otherwise. After using the same type of alarm for many years, though, people evolve and are no longer effected by them. This is why a new, more efficient alarm is needed on the planet. One that differs from all others on the market that will be just as effective now as it will be in 10 or 20 years.

Let’s rethink your topic. The topic that you are suggesting is a solution area, not a topic area. Start by defining a global theme that you are interested in, then narrow the focus by choosing an activity area that you can observe and physically experience. Look at some of the examples listed on the site to get a good idea.
An alarm is a product focused topic area. http://rand.gatech.edu/?cat=3251 Please refine your topic and re-post before you begin.

We decided to change our global topic to public safety. From there we narrowed down the topic to public safety in urban areas. Would that be an appropriate focus for this project?

That sounds like a good topic area. But now I suggest that you narrow the topic a little. Public Safety is very broad and could define safe walking options in urban areas, food safety in urban areas, crime safety. ect. ect. But I think this is a great start and could be very interesting. When narrowing the topic think about what field activity your team would like to do and how you plan on researching and physically experiencing the topic. Please post a new comment addressing the suggestions I have made.

we want to investigate safe walking options
our plan – to investigate/observe pedestrians and be pedestrians ourselves on different street corners, sidewalks, and crosswalks in different types of weather and on different types of terrain. we also plan to just ask people about what they feel should be changed to make walking conditions safer.

Ok, great! I will make a new category for your group: Promoting Safe Walking in Urban Areas. Please use this category every time your team uploads a post for this project.

I think this topic also has the potential of being applicable to public health and promoting walking, or even to sustainability and promoting walking and cycling as an alternative form of transportation. This topic has a lot of potential.

Your team should begin researching as soon as possible.
