AUT’s inaugural three-day design challenge recently wrapped up and saw teams tasked with creating the missing element for a baby incubator, which was recently designed by independent development agency Medicine Mondiale for use in developing countries. Days out from the event, the teams were armed with not much more than $100 and basic prototyping materials.
Medicine Mondiale chief executive Ray Avery played a key role in the 3-Day Challenge, briefing the students, critiquing their designs and announcing the winning team.
Watch below to see the challenge unfold.
