I was recently involved in Auckland University of Technology’s inaugural three-day design challenge. Teams ere tasked with creating the missing element for a baby incubator, (recently designed by Medicine Mondiale) for use in developing countries. Days out from the event, the teams were provided with $100 and basic prototyping materials and set to work.
My role in the 3-Day Challenge was to brief the students, critique their designs and announce the winning team. It was a great event, and more information and a great video can be found at the Idealog Design Daily website: http://designdaily.co.nz/blog/2010/09/all-you-need-love-100-and-basic-prototyping-materi
