Sample-Bicycle Helmet

It is a very admiral job whoever did the Bicycle Helmet sample model that is presented to the first-time OS user, but...

You really need to remove this model and not use it as an example of what OS can do. From a marketing standpoint it is completely misleading and is the ultimate example of "make a quasi-product demo fit to the capabilities of what we have" and it comes off as a joke (and even offensive) to any ID or product designer. This model will hurt OS credibility by giving the (uninformed PD ) OS audience a false sense of capability, and it will just incense to rage the informed Product Designer.

So far OS stands out from the pack because of the character of the people behind it being smart, honest, practical and fair straight-shooters. don't tarnish that reputation by appearing native...

Thanks for listening
