Please help (small survey)INVENTING A PAINTBALL BACKPACK HOPPER

So i am making a backpack hopper in my tech class

-My idea is to make a hard but comfortable "Backpack hopper"
-It will have a longer than arm length range of Motion
-will hold approx. 800 balls or more
-low profile
-Feeds as fast as i can make it feed(dont know yet the possiblilty)
-all gun avalible
-left handed or right handed

Yea i know it has already been done but i want to get a good grade

I Need to ask about 40 people

#1- Have you ever played paintball
#2- Do you hate running out of paint in the middle of games
#3- If there was a Backpack hopper would you consider buying it?
#4- Would you spend 100$ on it?
#5- Would you spend more than 100$ on it?

Please respond it would be very helpful
(i need a perfect grade)

If you can't take this, don't try PBN. Those were just our opinions.

1 what do you think
2 I'm a front/mid a 3 pack is all I need (no)
3 if it feeds good
4 if its worth it
5 same as 4

I had an idea of a big hopper that you put on your back and it feeds paint through a tube.

1. yes
2. yes but I rarely do with pods. I can reload quickly enough that it doesn't matter.
3. yes, if it were light, low-profile, and could reliably feed 20 bps. I would also need to be able to switch hands quickly without getting mangled by a tube or what not.
4. no
5. no

Just to let you know, you can't legally make this product and sell it. A guy in Australia has already made one. And then after he made it, and was trying to get a patent, he discovered that there already is one.
