Make48: Inventing Against the Clock.
Teams apply and compete to develop a new commercial product idea in a 48 hour invent-a-thon weekend. Teams have 48 hours to plan, prototype and pitch a new idea within the specifications of a challenge, revealed at the start of the 48 hours.
Teams build a prototype.
Teams utilize a variety of tools, materials, work spaces and expert guidance provided by a resource-rich fabrication workshop. The workshop and staff, “tool techs”, provide the resources to prototype ideas of ranging complexity for competitors of varying building expertise.
Pitch your idea to the judges.
When time expires, teams pitch their idea to a panel of product development, scouting and sales experts.
Prizes and licensing potential.
Top three teams will be awarded prizes, including a crowdfunding campaign and licensing consideration!
